Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium
17 May 2007
Ends: 18 May 2007
The Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium will create a constructive forum for researchers to express, discuss and explore new research and ideas in an interactive environment. The symposium will explicitly aim to cross traditional period/institutional/theoretical divides to allow discussion between researchers of diverse expertise and perspectives. This symposium will aim to provide a forum for researchers to present ideas and thoughts informally without the pressure of producing complete research ready for publication.
Sessions will consist of 20-minute papers followed by open discussion and debate chaired by leading specialists in each field. As wide as possible a range of topics will be selected, and papers may cover all areas of Early Medieval research and discourse. Academics, professionals and undergraduates are invited to attend and give to support and comments. Poster presentations are welcome from those unable to attend or speak on the day.
Our intention is to theme the sessions according to the proposals that delegates submit; papers relating to theory, method and practice in Early Medieval Archaeology are particularly welcome.
Included in the registration fee is buffet lunch both days, tea and coffee, conference literature and bookstalls, and a field trip followed by reception at Cosmeston Medieval Village.
For all enquiries and to submit abstracts of 250 words please contact Andrew Seaman as below.
Please send in your registration forms by May 1st 2007.
The deadline for abstracts is 1st March 2007.
