CASA 4 – Diversity in Archaeology: Call for Papers

The call for papers is now open for the Cambridge Annual Student Archaeology (CASA) conference.

CASA is a student run conference, and the theme this year is ‘Diversity in Archaeology’. The conference has seven sessions running this year, led by researchers from a diverse range of institutions from across Europe, and there will be a panel session by leading archaeologists to close the conference.

The session themes are as follows:

  • Beating Androcentric Narratives:  Women’s Voices in Archaeological Discourse
  • Race and Ethnicity Across Time 
  • Echoes from Beyond: Diversity in the Archaeology of Death
  • Archaeology of ‘Scapes’: Diversity in Environment and Perspective
  • The 3Ds: Diversity, Dissemination and Disclosure of Heritage
  • Archaeological Science: Using Diversified Science Methods in Archaeology
  • Interpreting the Past Through Others’ Eyes: Critically Approaching Ethnographic Analogies  

Paper submissions are welcomed from all individuals, at any stage of their research, to present in an open and friendly environment. It is also a perfect opportunity for first time presenters to gain invaluable experience in discussing their research within a supportive peer network. This year’s CASA will be held online, with papers being given live or pre-recorded on Zoom with discussion following each session. We also will have a Slack channel set-up for further discussion, networking, and sharing of research. Excellent student prizes are on offer for the best presentations.
