The Interdisciplinary Archaeology Workshop is looking for presenters for the 2015-2016 school year!
The IAW seeks to bring together archaeologists from various departments across the university to share in a common conversation about archaeological practice, theory, and the nature of archaeological knowledge. As always, we strive to create a constructive and creative conversation between archaeologists of different disciplinary persuasions, one that encourages new questions, new interpretive frameworks, and invigorates both our common concerns as archaeologists as well as our ties to our various ally disciplines, including socio-cultural anthropology, history, art history, geography, and area studies.
Do you have an article, conference paper, dissertation chapter, or other work that you would like to present at the IAW during the 2015-2016 year? Do you know of friends or colleagues who will be in the Chicago area during the year who may be interested in presenting at the IAW? Are there any distinguished faculty members from other universities whom you might like to see invited as special guest speakers to the IAW? Please contact Jamie Countryman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Emilie Sarrazin (email@example.com) with your interest, suggestions, and ideas! If you are interested in presenting a paper, please indicate which quarter you would prefer, and send us a working title if you have one.
As usual, we will meet every other Thursday at 4:30pm in Haskell 315, unless otherwise indicated. This year, we are especially interested in expanding the IAW beyond our traditional constituency of anthropology and NELC. We would like to extent a special invitation to our archaeologically-minded colleagues in Classics, East Asian Studies, Art History, History, and the like, to join us in the workshop and, if you would like, present!
Please write to the email addresses mentioned above if you want to be added to the listserv!
