CALL. 03.02.2018: Holism and the Ancient World. Combined Approaches in Archaeology, Numismatics, and
The Oxford University Archaeological and Numismatic Societies are pleased to co-host their student conference. The theme, “Holism and the Ancient World”, invites undergraduate and postgraduate students to take a multi-faceted or interdisciplinary approach as they present and exchange innovative research and ideas on the past.
The material culture of ancient civilizations presents an immediate connection between students and their understanding of the ancient world. Sculpture, painting, and architecture, among other media, prove essential in illuminating socio-political, military, and religious practices. Coins are no different in this respect; their imagery, composition and context provide further insight into a culture’s economy, politics, and trade networks.

This conference will encourage discussion on the ways in which art, archaeology, and numismatics interrelate in student research. Papers can encompass what can be gained from a more holistic approach to studying the ancient world, or what is lost when interdisciplinary approaches are not taken.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students are invited to participate in lively debate on this broad topic. Submitted papers can focus on any geographical location, and should seek to fall within a broad chronology from Prehistory to the Late Antique and Byzantine eras. Papers on later periods that address the reception of archaeology and numismatics will are also welcomed.
Applicants should submit a title with a brief abstract (maximum 300 words) and any enquiries to the Secretaries of the Oxford University Numismatic and Archaeological Societies:
email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday 3th February 2018.
Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, followed by 5 to 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Abstracts will only be considered from current undergraduate or graduate students. Applicants must be available to present their talk on the day of the conference.
Following the submission deadline there will be further updates on the finalised conference programme in February 2018.
