The 23rd Annual Meeting of the EAA that will be held in Maastricht – one of the Europe’s cores – is a good cause for a reflection upon the state of the art of Roman Archaeology, in the broadest sense of this definition, in Europe. In a time that calls for breaking down barriers – also the scientific ones – within the European Union and more in general within the European Nations, we cannot ignore how Archaeology is still affected by different approaches that are the result of settled traditions or even specific disciplinary orientations at the level of nations. These differences marked, and to a certain extent still mark, the development of Roman Archaeology as a whole; in particular, three strains of the discipline appear to concern this issue: theory, methodology, archaeological themes.
The aim of this session is to outline the development of these specific scholarly tendencies within the history of Roman Archaeology, but also to reflect upon some prompts in order to understand if and how will be possible to overtake these specific approaches. Some topics that could be taken into account, even if further proposals are encouraged, are: Roman Archaeology, arts and artifacts: which relation?; Documentation and data interchange: which present, which future?; Roman Archaeology and other disciplines: which relation?
Particularly welcomed are papers that at the same time deal with geographic boundaries as a conditioning factor for the development of discipline, historiographic focus and prospective reflections on how to establish disciplinary dialogue beyond national boundaries.
Session type: Combination of papers (15 minutes each) and posters with final discussion.
Any information about the conference is available at the website http://www.eaa2017maastricht.nl/. Submission for papers and posters will be opened on 3rd February 2017 and will be closed on 15th March 2017.
