Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium 19-20 May 2010 – Call For Papers

December, 2009 · Written by: John Tierney Print This Page This entry is part 15 of 30 in the Issue 04

The Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium is an interactive forum run for and by graduate research students who focus on the archaeology of the Early Medieval period, roughly the period between the 4th-12th centuries AD.  EMASS aims to provide a constructive and interdisciplinary forum to facilitate discussion and debate between researchers from different institutions and specialities, in a friendly and helpful environment.   The annual EMASS conference, previously held in Cardifff, Exeter, and Sheffield is the primary venue for this discussion.

The group is not restricted to students who are in full-time education and would like to invite early career researchers to join in the discussion. We also welcome early medieval researchers from across the globe and from any discipline to become involved! Check out the EMASS website for more information, including the EMASS manifesto, the mailing list, and previous publications.

EMASS 2010 – Call For Papers

EMASS are pleased to announce that the 4th annual Early Medieval Archaeology Student Symposium will be held in University College Dublin on the 19-20 May 2010.

EMASS would like to invite submissions for papers of c.20 minutes duration on any aspect of the early medieval period (400-1200AD) from any part of the world. In keeping with EMASS tradition, there is no set theme for the symposium but papers addressing theory in the early medieval period are particularly welcome, as are papers addressing other approaches such as experimental archaeology. As this is the first time that EMASS will visit Ireland, we also invite papers addressing ideas of regionality and difference in the early medieval period
