Meeting Announcement and Call for Papers Conference on Medieval Archaeology October 18, 2014 State University of Cortland
Cortland New York
Submissions for 15-20 minute papers on medieval archaeology are now being accepted for presentation at the second annual American conference dedicated to medieval archaeology. Paper topics can include any aspect of the study of medieval archaeology in Europe and the Mediterranean world. The expected time frame is roughly 500-1500 AD. Topics can include any aspect of archaeological work: examples include results of field surveys, excavations, or field schools; collection analysis, material culture studies, or museum studies; cultural landscape, built environment, or architectural studies; zooarchaeological, archaeobotanical, or bioarchaeological studies; diet, food culture, and health; archaeogeophysics and archaeometric studies; application of methodological techniques or theory to medieval archaeological resources; or approaches to teaching medieval archaeology in the field or classroom. The geographic area is intended to include all areas within the European medieval world, including the widespread territories of the Vikings to the myriad societies surrounding the Mediterranean. The intent of this conference is to give an opportunity for medieval archaeologists based in North America to gather, network, and exchange ideas in a dedicated forum, rather than scattered in more general archaeological or medieval studies conferences. Papers should be directed at an educated audience but one that may not be familiar with the detailed literature of any given area of study. The language of the conference is English. Submissions should be 200 words or less, and include three keywords regarding the subject matter of the paper. Submissions should include name and contact information for the author(s).

Submissions must be received by Friday, July 25, 2014. Registration deadline is September 19, 2014. Registration details will be forthcoming.
