Archaeological Review from Cambridge - Call for Submissions
The Archaeological Review from Cambridge would like to invite contributions to our April 2012 issue: Science and the Material Record. Please find our call for papers attached.
Suggested topics/themes include but are not limited to:
• Can we now reconcile social and scientific archaeology, after a decade of calls to do so? Is it possible to develop a human narrative through the application of science to material culture, or do we simply tell the story of things? Is there still a place for traditional archaeology?
• Does the frequent application of scientific techniques to all aspects of the material record reflect wider self-confidence issues of a humanities discipline in an increasingly STEM (Science Technology Engineering Maths) centred world?
• Should archaeological scientists be concerned with making their work more accessible to non-specialists?
• Is archaeology doomed to be a discipline built on borrowed techniques, or can archaeologists engage in a dialogue with scientific practitioners? Can the application of scientific techniques to archaeological data result in a meaningful contribution by archaeology to science?
Abstracts of not more than 500 words should be sent to Katie Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Danika Parikh (email@example.com) by the 28th February 2011. The full article should not exceed 4000 words. Deadline for first drafts will be in late May 2011, for publication in April 2012. Style guidelines and notes for contributors can be found at http://www.societies.cam.ac.uk/arc/contribute.html.
Archaeological Review from Cambridge is a journal of archaeology managed and published on a voluntary basis by postgraduate research students at the University of Cambridge. Issues are released twice a year. ARC is a non-profit making organisation. Although primarily rooted in archaeological theory and practice, ARC increasingly accommodates a wide range of perspectives with the aim of establishing a strong, inter-disciplinary journal which will be of interest to those engaged in a range of fields. Please feel free to forward this message on to other colleagues who may be interested in contributing.
