Graduate Archaeology at Oxford (GAO) 2016 Conference

28-10-2015 by Michaela Ecker

Graduate Archaeology at Oxford is welcoming submissions for papers to be presented at the annual conference in Oxford, 12th-13th March 2016. This conference will focus on the multidimensional ways in which humans have interacted with their natural environment in prehistoric and historic times. The volume of research conducted on reconstructing past environments over recent decades demonstrates the significance of understanding how social groups interacted with their natural surroundings and how, in return, environmental factors affected societal, political and economic developments. We seek to promote the synthesis of archaeological data and the results of diverse disciplines and methodologies.

The GAO conference is one of the leading graduate conferences encompassing archaeological, anthropological and historical perspectives. Presenters will have the opportunity to submit their papers to the GAO conference volume published by British Archaeological Reports (BARpublishing.com).

 Proposals accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words should be submitted to gao2016@merton.ox.ac.uk . Abstracts should include the name and institution of the applicant, title and 4 keywords. The deadline is 27th November 2015

For inquiries please contact Julia Binnberg (julia.binnberg@arch.ox.ac.uk) or Christina Marini (christina.marini@exeter.ox.ac.uk) or visit http://www.arch.ox.ac.uk/gao.html for further information.
