Graduate Archaeology at Oxford would like to invite graduate students and recent post docs for paper submissions to this year's GAO Conference:
GAO Annual Conference: First Call for Papers
Interdisciplinarity in Archaeology
Graduate Archaeology at Oxford invites submissions for papers and posters to be presented at the annual conference in Oxford from 14 – 15 March 2014.
This year the GAO is continuing last year’s theme, asking what’s new in archaeology, this time with a focus on interdisciplinarity. Archaeological projects increasingly conduct research using an approach that combines methods, theories, and data from different disciplines. The GAO wants to know what some of the challenges, benefits, and methods are for conducting such research in this way. Do you have a research topic that cuts across multiple disciplines? What methods do you? The GAO conference is a friendly forum for postgraduates to present their work and engage with fellow researchers.
Presentations and posters from all areas of archaeology, anthropology, and history are welcome to contribute to the conference. Papers will be included in the next GAO conference volume published by Archaeopress.
Topics include research touching on the following areas:
- Cross-discipline methodologies. What methods does your research employ to combine different types of data and theories.
- Interdisciplinary theory. Does this kind of research work? What are some of the drawbacks?
- Text and material culture.
- Science, technology, and archaeology.
- The application of methods from anthropology, psychology, and history.
Posters and proposals for 20 minute paper presentations are welcome. Please send an abstract of up to 300 words with a title, your name, and your institution to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15th, 2013.
