42nd Conference of the Association for Environmental Archaeology
02 Dec 2022 - 04 Dec 2022 • University of Glasgow, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Glasgow and University of Pennsylvania, USA
Abstract:
The conference will showcase research that explores our relationships to landscapes and land use to consider how we have shaped our modern world and its current ecological and climate crisis. We are interested in hearing about research that investigates the environmental archaeology of landscapes and land-use studies that utilise archaeological and historical evidence, including texts, maps, images, settlement datasets, artifacts, plant and animal remains, biomolecular evidence, taking a variety of perspectives; we are also keen to welcome contributions from the digital humanities that engage with these lines of evidence as well as the broader themes of the conference.

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS)
Abstract:
The Association for Jewish Studies (AJS) was founded in 1969 by a small group of scholars seeking a forum for exploring methodological and pedagogical issues in the new field of Jewish Studies. Since its founding, the AJS has grown into the largest learned society and professional organization representing Jewish Studies scholars worldwide. As a constituent organization of the American Council of Learned Societies, the Association for Jewish Studies represents the field in the larger arena of the academic study of the humanities and social sciences in North America.

SHA 2023 — Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology
06 Jan 2023 - 09 Jan 2023 • Lisbon, Portugal
Organizer:
The Society for Historical Archaeology
Abstract:
The proposed theme for the conference not only references the international location and outlook of the meeting alongside the modern history of Lisbon as the center of one of the most significant global European empires of the early modern period, but also acknowledges the transformation of historical archaeology into a truly global discipline. It is envisioned that the theme will encourage individual papers and symposia that address the increasingly global character of the discipline in the past, present and future, as well as themes of movement and diaspora, and industrialization and mechanization. Many European archaeologists also define ‘historical’ archaeology differently, noting that the historical record dates back to earlier periods, and this conference may provide the opportunity to explore disciplinary definitions in a global context while still focusing on the post-1500 world.
Topics:
Revisiting Global Archaeologies

Physiognomy at the Crossroad of Magic, Science and the Arts
20 Jan 2023 - 21 Jan 2023 • Online , United States
Organizer:
UCLA | European Languages & Transcultural Studies
Abstract:
The symposium will examine how the study of a person’s facial features or expressions as indicatives of character or ethnicity, has evolved from the crossroad of magic, religion, and primitive medicine to present day cultural preoccupation with wellness and beauty. In this context, the discoveries of regional (cranio-facial) neurophysiology and psychology and the practice of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery have a centuries old relationship with physiognomy. As the study of one’s outward appearance evolved from its classical roots and humanistic self-representations through 18th and 19th century adaptations in fiction and travelogues, it gradually became a scientific discipline. Along the way, however, physiognomy came to be associated with the pseudo-sciences of phrenology and craniology and used to promote eugenic policies. Thus, it became tainted with racial bigotry and biological determinism, and trapped within questions of delinquency, monstrosity and posthumanism. In short, throughout its history, physiognomy has played both positive and negative roles in the evolution of significant aspects of the socio-cultural order of the western world that merit contemporary update and in-depth study.

The Future of Medieval France
23 Feb 2023 - 25 Feb 2023 • UCLA Campus, United States
Organizer:
UCLA
Abstract:
An international conference on the past, present, and future of medieval studies in Europe. In honor of John W. Baldwin

Bringing together scholars of medieval France from the Anglophone and Francophone worlds, the conference will honor the legacy of John W. Baldwin who bridged the two and look into the future of medieval France in the global context. What does it mean to study medieval France today, when academic research and funding trends increasingly seem to decenter France? While this conference focuses on France, the reflection is relevant for all of Europe. Why and how, then, should we study medieval France and Europe? How can we reform or decolonize the medieval European fields from within while remaining true to the time period, its geographies, mentalities, and connectivities?

Biological anthropology is a science that deals with the adaptations, variability, and evolution of human beings and their living and fossil relatives. Because it studies human biology in the context of human culture and behavior, biological anthropology is also a social science.

The American Association of Biological Anthropologists, or AABA, is the world's leading professional organization for biological anthropologists. Formed by 83 charter members in 1930, the AABA now has an international membership of over 2,200. The Association's annual meetings draw more than two thousand scientists and students from all over the world.

14C and Diet III — 3rd Radiocarbon & Diet Conference
20 Jun 2023 - 23 Jun 2023 • Oxford, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Oxford, School of Archaeology
Abstract:
As in previous meetings the major focus of this workshop will be on aspects of past dietary adaptations of prehistoric human groups and the application of radiocarbon, coupled with stable isotopes that gives insight into past diet. There is growing awareness of the link between radiocarbon variation and dietary choice and the influence on the construction of reliable chronologies. We welcome presentations which apply diet-related stable isotopes to the archaeological past, including carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen and sulphur, and link this with radiocarbon dating to understand more fully the chronology of sites and regions.

INQUA XXI — XXI INQUA Congress in Rome 2023
13 Jul 2023 - 20 Jul 2023 • Rome, Italy
Organizer:
Sapienza University of Rome and National Research Council (CNR)
Abstract:
The theme of the congress is “a Mediterranean perspective on Quaternary Sciences” since we strongly believe that the Mediterranean region, so geologically young and active, is the ideal place where to discuss the processes and events that shaped the landscape, the environment and the ecosystems in the last 2.58 million years. From the glacial systems in the Alps to the desert facing the southern shore, from the large coastal plains and deltas to the rocky coasts where the mountain ranges reach the sea, from the karst to the lacustrine to the volcanic environments, almost all of the Quaternary features are present in the region. The congress is organized by Sapienza University, the National Research Council and the Italian Association for Quaternary Studies in cooperation with the whole body of Italian Quaternary scientists. It also relies on support provided by the main Italian scientific societies and governmental institutions dealing with Quaternary themes as well as by many countries from around the Mediterranean.
Topics:
A Mediterranean Perspective on Quaternary Sciences.
