CAI presents the 27th Annual Visiting Scholar Conference.
March 26-27 2010, Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
This conference will bring together researchers who share an interest in sensory modes of approaching the past and will cross boundaries between chronological periods, geographical regions, and material specializations.
Potential themes to be covered at the conference include the presentation of new results of sensory archaeological projects; multisensory and synesthetic aspects of the production and consumption of material culture; the recognition of sensory hierarchies in past societies; embodied practices, including memory; and the dissemination of sensuous pasts in the present.
Early career scholars are encouraged to apply. Abstract submission deadline: December 1st 2009.
Papers presented are eligible for inclusion in a peer-reviewed volume, published as part of the Occasional Papers series of the Center for Archaeological Investigations.
