10th Annual Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium
University of Bristol
10-12 May 2016
The University of Bristol is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 10th Annual Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium. EMASS 2016 will be hosted by the Department of Archaeology & Anthropology, University of Bristol, with sessions held in the stunning Chapter House of Bristol Cathedral. Please find details attached.
Now in its 10th year, EMASS represents an interactive forum for postgraduate students and early career researchers investigating the early medieval period in Europe and beyond, providing a dynamic and stimulating environment in which to exchange ideas.
EMASS welcomes proposals for papers, posters and sessions which focus on any aspect of the early medieval period, broadly encompassing the 4th–12th centuries AD, in all geographical areas. EMASS has always been interdisciplinary in scope, and we welcome proposals from a range of fields.
Proposals by international researchers are also especially welcome, although please note that the symposium is conducted in English.
EMASS 2016 particularly encourages papers that explore innovative methodologies and uses of technologies in the study of early medieval archaeology.
We are inviting proposals for:
• Posters: A1 or A2 in size
• Sessions: 2 or 3 papers linked by a common theme
Please send abstracts (max 250 words), institutional affiliation and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 21st March 2016.
The symposium will include presentations over two days (10th-11th May 2016), during which lunch and refreshments will be provided as part of the registration fee (£tbc). The EMASS fieldtrip will take place on 12th May.
EMASS 2016 Committee: David Etheridge, Caitlin Greenwood, Dr Kate Mees, Alexander Thomas (Department of Archaeology & Anthropology, University of Bristol).
