23th annual meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists
We are pleased to announce that the session, entitled “Framing rural economy in al-Andalus and al-Maghrib al-Aqsâ : archaeological perspectives”, has been accepted as part of the program of the 23th annual meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists, which will be held in Maastricht (Netherlands) from the 30th of August to the 3rd of September 2017.
The city is by definition a living entity. It translates itself into a collectiveness of individuals who share and act on a material, social and cultural setting. Its history is one of dreams, achievements and loss. As such, it also bears a history of identity. To know the history of cities is to understand our own place in the contemporaneity. The past is always seen through the eyes of the present and can only be understood as such. On the occasion of the 261st anniversary of the 1755 earthquake in Lisbon, we invite scholars and experts in the fields of heritage studies, digital humanities, history, history of art and information technology to share and debate their experience and knowledge on digital heritage.
Practices, Politics, and Policy in Premodern Societies (6th-17th Centuries)
Money is at once elusive and concrete. As a mode of economic exchange it exists within a relatively fixed playing field, with clearly delineated boundaries of benefits and costs. However, poor handling, bad advice, or even a bad turn at a game of chance can swallow money up in one fell swoop. The workshop will investigate this wide array of pre-capitalist, western and non-western contexts from the English Isles, Flanders, France, Germany, Italy, and China between the Middle Ages and Early Modern times.
Within the rapidly expanding area of research on food and foodways, the medieval eastern Mediterranean is still very much an unexplored area. The aim of the POMEDOR project (People, Pottery and Food in the Medieval Eastern Mediterranean) was to explore this new field in a multidisciplinary way and to stimulate further research.
Word archaeological congress 8
Geoarchaeology, defined as the application of geosciences and geographical methods to prehistory, archaeology, and history, is now widely applied to study key subjects such as occupation patterns, territory and site exploitation, palaeoclimatic, palaeoenvironemental, and palaeogeographical changes, as well as anthropogenic impacts and system responses. The multidisciplinary and multiscalar dimensions of geoarchaeological approaches have encouraged continuous development and innovation of methods and approaches that have opened new possibilities for explorations in geographical sectors previously inaccessible, the development of large-scale data acquisitions and treatment, and also the development of microscopic scale analysis precision. This session will highlight global research in geoarchaeology with particular emphasis on innovative methods or cutting edge research using established approaches.
On 24-25 October 2016 the two Warsaw-based academic institutions: the Institute of Archaeology of the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University and the Institute of Art History of the University of Warsaw organise an international, multidisciplinary conference, which will be devoted to the role of the architecture in creation, enhancement and preservation of cultural landscapes.
The conference seeks to examine the shaping of art history as a discipline during the 19th century in relation to artistic training and exchanges between artists and scholars. The development of art history has been associated with an array of socio-political and economic factors such as the formation of a bourgeois public, the politics of national identity and state legitimacy or the needs of an expanding art market. This conference aspires to explore yet another, less studied dimension: the extent to which the historical study of art was also rooted in an intention to inform contemporary artistic production.
Narrations du passé, performances et reconstitutions musicales (XXe-XXIe siècles)
Chercher à reconstruire les musiques du passé et leur histoire est une préoccupation ancienne. Depuis le XIXe siècle, l’imaginaire orientaliste a considérablement alimenté l’idée de l’existence de musiques « originelles ». Qu’il s’agisse de musiques « pharaonique », « arabe » ou « hindoue », une même référence au passé, vu comme prestigieux et immuable, a contribué à rationaliser les savoirs musicaux sur la base de filiations construites. Si la période orientaliste est relativement bien documentée, le présent workshop s’attache plus spécifiquement aux manières de dire et de raconter le passé au cours du XXe jusqu’au début du XXIe siècle.
The aim of the conference is to bring to widespread public notice a famed series of occasions when, as the hub of Renaissance Europe, the Low Countries commanded the continent’s attention, with Hainaut and its capital Mons featuring as the site of the most famous and influential events. These took place in 1549 when Charles V, Count of Hainaut and Holy Roman Emperor, attempted to determine the continent’s dynastic, political and economic future by nominating as his successor his son Philip of Spain. With this aim in mind, Charles’s sister Mary of Hungary commissioned a series of magnificent festivals, the most lavish of which took place in September of that year at her palaces close to Mons at Binche and Mariemont.
A Study of Cemeteries in Luxembourg in the Context of the Greater Region
The University of Luxembourg (FLSHASE - Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education, Research Unit IPSE – Identities. Politics, Societies, Space) seeks to hire a PhD Candidate (m/f) to join a multiannual research project, entitled "Material Culture and Spaces of Remembrance. A Study of Cemeteries in Luxembourg in the Context of the Greater Region" (Acronym: R.I.P.). The project examines changes in sepulchral culture and social transformation processes concerning individualisation, pluralisation, secularisation as well as de- and resacralisation. The project also pertains to spatal and urban development as cemetery areas undergo significant changes in allocation.
Depuis les premières études engagées en 1783 par Gablitz sur la chôra de Chersonèse, la Mer Noire constitue une zone de référence dans les recherches conduites sur l’aménagement des espaces ruraux et littoraux au sein du monde colonial grec. Le relevé systématique des nombreux fossés et murets qui parcourent le littoral occidental de la Crimée, initié dans le cadre du projet grec de Catherine II, a précédé de quelques décennies l’ouverture des premières fouilles en 1832 sur les espaces urbains. Une nouvelle étape, décisive, a été franchie dans les années 1960 par la mise en application d’une archéologie du sol, laquelle a offert un éclairage inédit sur l’organisation interne de plusieurs kleroi proches de Chersonèse, Kerkinitis et Kalos Limen. Au même moment débutaient dans l’Ouest de la mer Noire les premières recherches sur le territoire d’Istros, bientôt enrichies par l’apport de nombreuses études géomorphologiques sur les métamorphoses du delta voisin du Danube. Les bases fertiles d’une enquête géoarchéologique étaient jetées, laquelle n’a cessé depuis de s’enrichir grâce aux travaux menés ces dernières années tout autour de la zone pontique.
The purpose of the course is to expose students to interdisciplinary research that involves archaeology and the natural sciences in the field. The students will experience interactive work that combines excavation and analysis of materials using an on-site laboratory. The course will emphasize the inter-connection between laboratory analyses and the archaeological context, and will include fieldwork, laboratory work, and lectures.

The very quick recent development of archaeological and epigraphic work in Saudi Arabia brought deep changes in our knowledge of the Arabian Peninsula — which until the middle of the 2000's was only based on research on the periphery: Kuwait, Bahrayn, Qatar, The Emirates, Oman, and Yemen. That development reveals how wide the gaps are, of the interpretative frame in particular, for broad geo-historical segments. That is true especially for what is generally called Late Antiquity (4th- early 7th centuries AD), and here "Late Pre-Islamic" or even in local religious terms jâhîliyah, "ignorance" — a term which actually reflects correctly the state of knowledge. The amount of data collected within less than ten years within a large North-Western half of the Peninsula makes possible to see that except for the extreme North (current Joradanian border and Jawf Oasis) the Christianity does not penetrate and Byzantiums unifying power is absent. One is even unable to name what the field teams are dealing with. The proposed doctoral work must produce the state of that question, for which there if a rich evidence in stratigraphy, architecture, objects, and even epigraphy due to the recent demonstration of the Nabataean-Arabic continuum. The comparison with the Byzantine and christianized areas of the extreme North must be one of the leading strands but no way the only one, since the heart of the subject lyes, on the contrary, in the currently unnamed culture(s) of the Peninsula itself.

International call for projects
Under the program NEARCH, two calls for proposals on the theme of art and archeology have just been launched. The aim of the NEARCH project is to explore and strengthen the relationships between European citizens with archeology, particularly through art projects. In this context, the CENTQUATRE in Paris and the JAN VAN EYCK ACADEMIE in Maastricht therefore invite artists from all disciplines who are interested in the link between art and archeology, to apply for residency in their buildings.

ICAZ 2014, Thematic session of 12th International Conference of Archaeozoology
This session proposes to discuss the presence of animals in funerary practices through the concept of “accompanying deaths” or “animal companions” with the help of concrete cases or even theoretical reflexions.
Floors and ceilings, shutters and frames, doors and panelling in medieval and modern architecture
This study day, organised by the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (IRPA-KIK), the University of Namur, the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and the Royal Museums for Art and History (MRAH-KMKG), is part of the series of scientific meetings started by the research group AcanthuM (University of Namur) on the theme of construction finishings and fittings. The present meeting will focus on joinery elements in architecture from the Middle Ages and modern period.
Géopolitique coloniale et cultures locales dans l'Orient hellénistique et romain (IIIe siècle av. J.-C. – IIIe siècle ap. J.-C.)
It seems clear that, in the Greek-speaking regions of the Roman Empire, Hellenistic models (civic, military or institutional) exercised considerable influence over “Italic” colonial projects. Within this field, relations between military colonists and indigenous peoples demand special attention, considering the degree of social, cultural, economic, political and geopolitical transformation brought about by the installation of certain groups upon those lands as a result of the will of the great power(s) that ruled over them. As for the Roman colonization, modern scholars have often described Roman colonies as vectors of Romanization inserted in alien lands, writing that these communities must have functioned as images of a “small Rome.” While the existence of Latin-speaking colonists ruled by a favorable juridical system such as the Ius Italicum cannot be denied, such a reductionist model can no longer be accepted without qualification, especially in the context of the Greek-speaking provinces of the Roman East. The regions of the Eastern Mediterranean world saw the coming of a number of groups of Roman colonists and thus their cultural climate, their agrarian structures and their geopolitical environment changed. The aim of this panel is to explore new research paths based on broader studies in time and space.
