With our student conference reaching its 5th year, we thought it appropriate to look back a bit and contemplate the perspectives of our “Perspectives”. Also, after the previous more thematically specific meetings, we thought it would be good, for a change, to loosen up the range of topics to allow for more diversity.
Therefore, we would like to invite contributions from the whole spectrum of what we call Classical archaeology, but also its neighbouring disciplines, but targeting more the new approaches and methodologies used in our field of research. Various interdisciplinary takes on the matter will be especially valued, such as collaboration with natural sciences, new uses of computer applications, but also more theoretically and methodologically targeted papers. Let us really discuss the topic of where Classical archaeology stands today and where you as the upcoming generation would like to see it heading.
Conceived broadly, this theme gives young scholars a full opportunity to present and discuss their opinions and thoughts applicable to the theme. Papers from postgraduates in all stages of their research, both theoretical and practical are welcome.
More detailed abstracts of 500 words specifying methodology and the main results for a 20-minute paper or a poster (portrait, paper size 70x100 cm) are expected before October 1st, 2016 by email at: PeKla.firstname.lastname@example.org (note that the Czech abbreviation is with a K). If you have any further enquiries, please use the same e-mail address before the deadline. Applicants will be notified by the beginning of November.
Conference fee: EUR 20,- (covers printed materials, refreshments during the conference breaks, etc.; payable at the registration or through bank transfer). More info in the second circular.
Conference language: English
The post-conference informal programme will culminate on the Friday evening in a social event at a nearby venue!
