Innovative Approaches to Archaeology

The Graduate Archaeology at Oxford Annual Conference (GAO) 2020 provides an international platform for graduate students and early career researchers to promotesharediscuss their research, and expand their networks.

This year’s conference theme, Innovative Approaches to Archaeology, will engage with methodological approaches, theoretical paradigms, and new research to provide crucial insights in the field.

Our discipline is in a constant state of transformation that explores and is explored through the dataset we engage with. As such, it is innovativepermeable, and it has the potential of influencing other academic fields due to its unique relationship with the material world.

This year’s conference intends to provide a discussion arena which encompasses methods, frameworks, and approaches rather than focussing on specific historical or geographical clusters. With such commitment to de-localise the territories of our archaeologies, the conference is open to contributions that re-examine artefactschallenge established views and approaches, engage with theories, emerging ontologies, and methodological frameworks.
