The Fifth Conference on Eurasian Archaeology invites participants to explore how social ideologies, cosmologies, and world orders engendered different aspirations, motivations, obligations, and loyalties within communities of practice. The conference seeks session proposals and paper abstracts that will contribute new data, methodologies, and theories concerning the material manifestations of religion, grounded in studies that extend from prehistory to the present day and from Eastern Europe to the Far East.
We anticipate a range of sessions dealing with various aspects of the experience of the divine. Sessions could include:
Divination and Power: Practice, Politics and the Sacred
Religion Matters: The Materiality of Religious Practice
Sacred Space: Placemaking and Devotional Landscapes
Deities as Objects and Objects as Deities
We also encourage participants to consider proposing sessions that draw together multiple contributions on a theme. If you are interested in proposing a session, send a 1 paragraph description and list of 4-6 potential contributors to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15.
Abstracts for papers are due May 1, 2017 via the online submission portal at http://eac.arts.cornell.edu. The portal will open to receive submissions on April 1, 2017.
