Mortuary Archaeology Workshop: Digital Innovations and New Developments – 30 January 2024
Date: 30 January 2024
Location: University of Groningen
This one-day workshop aims to focus on innovations and new developments in mortuary archaeology. The first session of the day will feature our invited keynote speakers who will focus on digital innovations being applied within the field of mortuary archaeology. The remainder of the workshop will invite speakers, particularly Archon members (REMA, PhD, post-docs, staff), to present their recent, current and ongoing research. This can involve a theoretical or material and method driven approach to connect researchers working on a range of temporally and geographically disparate case studies. This will put the focus on new approaches to the interpretation of mortuary data. In line with Archon’s diversity and inclusivity policy, we encourage papers that demonstrate how these can be applied as themes to move mortuary archaeology forward as a discipline. We also welcome junior researchers and works-in-progress that wish to tap into the mortuary hive mind for advice and guidance. We hope this meeting can be an opportunity to bring together all those working in Mortuary Studies across the Netherlands, and beyond, for open and inclusive discussions, where we can present our current research and new approaches, seek solutions to the problems we face, share experiences, and plan future meetings.
Call for papers:
Please send a title and abstract (max. 300 words) to email@example.com by 13th December if you would like to present your research.
