Digital Humanities and Ritual Space
October 19, 2018 - October 21, 2018
Call for Papers Deadline: March 30, 2018
This is the second international meeting of the Unlocking Sacred Landscapes (UnSaLa) network, initiated by an Irish Research Council/Marie Curie Fellowship, and currently supported by Research Training Group 1878: Archaeology of Pre-Modern Economies of the Universities of Bonn and Cologne. The idea of the Network is based on an agreement of collaboration between the Department of Classics of Trinity College Dublin, the Laboratory of Geophysical-Satellite Remote Sensing and Archaeo-environment of the Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas, and the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus (for further information visit http://www.ucy.ac.cy/unsala/). This meeting will take place in Rethymnon, Crete.
The meeting will focus on digital approaches both to ritual space and to artefacts relating to ritual practice and cult. The terms ritual and cult are used broadly to include sanctuaries, temples, and churches, as well as the domestic and funerary spheres of life. We particularly welcome papers with a strong methodological focus on computational developments, digitisation processes and spatial analysis. Although the main focus of the network is the Mediterranean region, we also warmly welcome relevant papers from colleagues working in other areas of the world, with a view to stimulating wider methodological dialogues and comparative approaches. The chronological range is also open, ranging from prehistory to the recent past, and including cultural heritage management.
Papers should be 20 minutes long. Posters may also be accepted. The official language of the workshop is English. Selected papers of the workshop will be published in the form of a peer-reviewed collection of studies and not as conference proceedings.
There will be a registration fee (60 euros) to cover coffee-breaks, one dinner, and an excursion on 21st of October.
Please submit a 300 words (maximum) abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30th, 2018. Notification of acceptance will be made by April 30th, 2018.
