New Research and New Discoveries
27 February 2021 - Online
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Irish Post Medieval Archaeology Group (IPMAG) is pleased to announce that its annual conference is being held on 27 February 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, next year’s conference will take place online and is being scheduled as a one day event only. The theme of the conference is 'New Research and New Discoveries'. Archaeologists are engaged with recording and studying social, economic and cultural phenomena which have shaped Irish society in recent centuries. Plantation, religious schism, the ideology of improvement, industrialisation, famine, mass immigration, rebellion and revolution have left legacies in our material culture and landscape.
This call for papers would like to invite proposals which address the conference theme by looking at aspects of post-medieval archaeology in its widest possible sense. Papers discussing people, places, monuments, artefacts and material culture, theoretical approaches and policy frameworks relating to the theme are most welcome.
Student research (undergraduate or post-graduate) is particularly encouraged in any area of post-medieval cultural heritage studies. This is specifically to encourage new research and to provide a space to gain experience of public speaking in a friendly and collegiate atmosphere.
Deadline for submission is on or before 29th January, 2021.
