Appel à contributions : The Seventh Worldwide Conference of the Society for East Asian Archaeology (SEAA), 30 novembre 2015
The Seventh Worldwide Conference of the SEAA will take place in Boston in June 2016 and will be hosted jointly by Harvard University (Cambridge) and Boston University.
The dates are Wednesday June 8 – Sunday June 12, 2016.
The Society for East Asian Archaeology (SEAA) is pleased to announce that the Seventh SEAA Worldwide Conference will be held in Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on June 8-12, 2016. The conference will be hosted by the Department of Anthropology and Standing Committee on Archaeology, Harvard University, and the Department of Archaeology, Boston University. The local organizer of the conference is Rowan K. Flad.
The conference offers an opportunity for researchers to present the results of their work on any of a broad range of topics relating to East Asian Archaeology. We look forward to receiving proposals for presentations, posters or short films as individual proposals or in organized sessions. We welcome all topics that highlight the growth and depth of East Asian archaeology as a field of study, and encourage submissions focused on adjacent regions such as Southeast Asia, Oceania, and Central Asia. Examples of possible topics include, but are not limited to, topics in archaeological scientific approaches to East Asian topics, theoretical themes that cross-cut geographical boundaries, and sets of papers or posters that focus on a particular site, region, or culture.
As in past years, we will limit the number of concurrent sessions to three or four in order to ensure that we can have as much interaction among participants as possible. The length of individual talks will be approximately 15 or 20 minutes, although the specifics will ultimately depend on the final number of proposed talks.
Post-conference tours to archaeological and historical sites in the New England area and to Art and Archaeology museums in the Northeast USA that contain significant Asian collections are also being planned.
Information about SEAA, SEAA membership, and the Seventh Worldwide conference in Cambridge / Boston (including the relevant membership, registration and proposal forms) is available on the SEAA website:
The deadline for the submission of presentation and session proposals is November 30, 2015.
