ScapeCon 2022 “No (e)scape from bits and pieces – Towards an archaeology of fragmentation in the Aegean Bronze Age”

November 24, 2022 - November 27, 2022

UCLouvain
Pl. de l'Université 1
Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, Wallonia 1348


Call for Papers Deadline: March 31, 2022

In the fifth international installment of ScapeCon, we invite early career scholars to explore the concept of fragmentation in Aegean Bronze Age archaeology. From a hermeneutical perspective, a fragment can be various things: (1) any kind of (deliberately or unintentionally) broken or incomplete object, element, or feature that once formed part of a greater whole, such as an artifact, material assemblage, or socio-cultural context; but also (2) gaps in the archaeological data resulting in an insufficient knowledge of the context of any given object, element, or feature, even when this tangible entity appears fully preserved. Fragmentation can thus be tangible or intangible but is always relationally connected to a greater whole. At this conference, we invite papers that discuss both aspects of material and immaterial fragmentation within the three main sessions of people, material culture, and archaeological data. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches to contribute to the discussion on these topics.
