PONS AELIUS 13: Call for Papers

The 13th Edition of PONS AELIUS: Newcastle History, Classics and Archaeology Postgraduate E-Journal is now accepting submissions for papers.

Following a successful conference in May, the theme of this issue is:

Individuals and Communities

Humans are often considered ‘social animals’, existing only within larger groups, though still maintaining a unique identity. 

Communities and individuals often construct carefully curated identities, which can be mutual or distinct. What role can we, as historians, classicists and archaeologists, play in reviving and bringing back the individual from a historical period, ancient or more modern? How important is the individual experience in society? How are communities organised?

For more information, see the full CfP.

Abstracts should be 250-300 words, sent to this year’s journal editor, Chris Mowat (c.j.mowat@ncl.ac.uk) by the 15th August. The paper should be around 4000 words, and, if selected, will have a deadline of 26th September.

Democracy and people power conference, Durham

This cfp could be of interest to some of us – contact the organisers for more information.

Call for Papers: “We the People: We the People: Democracy, Democratization and people power in the 21st Century”.

Conference organized by the SGIA PhD Association 8th December 2016 Senate Suite, Durham Castle.

Building on last year’s successful conference, this conference is organised to offer doctoral researchers across all universities in the North East (Northumbria, Sunderland, Teesside, Newcastle and Durham) an opportunity to present their work and receive feedback from peers and academics in a cooperative environment. Moreover, participants will be able to gain invaluable experience in conference participation and have the chance to expand their network with other students in the region. The conference will address three main areas: theories of democracy, democracy in state institutions and democracy outside and beyond the state. Submissions with a national, regional or global focus are all welcome, and are expected to contribute to academic debate either in a theoretical, empirical, or methodological perspective. Abstract length should be no longer than 200 words, and should include the title of the proposed paper, the author’s name and institutional or departmental affiliation.

Please send your abstracts to Edward Walker or Elisabeth De Vega Alavedra at sgia.pa@durham.ac.uk by the 15th of July 2016 deadline. We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

12th Edition of our E-Journal – Call for Papers!

12th Edition of the Postgraduate Forum E-Journal

School of History, Classics and Archaeology, Newcastle University

 Disruptions

The theme of this year’s issue of the PGF E-Journal seeks to reflect on the way in which “disruptions” have shaped historical disciplines and processes.

Studies of history are littered with the disruptions of peoples and places, politics and religion, memory and belief, but the term itself is rarely used. Does the concept of disruption offer any new perspective, and how do we recognise and define these disruptions? Does the term disruption have any genuine utility?  Can we look at disruptions on a macro and micro scale?  How do we deal with disruptions to scholarly narratives when new theories, interpretations, and material are discovered?

We are seeking abstracts for papers of 4000 words. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Historiographical Disruptions
  • Material Disruptions
  • Disruptions of Landscape
  • Political Disruptions
  • Social Disruptions
  • Economic Disruptions
  • Ideological/Philosophical Disruptions
  • Religious Disruptions
  • Medical Disruptions
  • Urban or Rural Disruptions
  • Disruption of Memory
  • Natural or Environmental Disruption
  • Textual Disruptions
  • Narrative Disruptions

Please send abstracts of 250-300 words along with a CV to Amy Shields (amy.shields@ncl.ac.uk) by 28th August. If your paper is selected, the deadline for the final paper will the 2nd October.

NEBARSS 2015 – Call for Papers!

2nd Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Research Student Symposium

November 2015

We are holding a postgraduate research student conference here at Newcastle University focusing on the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age archaeology of Britain and Ireland. The conference will be preceded by a keynote speaker (tbc.) and a wine reception, which will provide delegates with a relaxed and friendly environment to discuss their research interests with other PG students and Newcastle staff members, as well as external archaeologists and interested parties.

The conference does not have a theme in order to allow researchers to present aspects of their research projects as they so wish. We are now accepting abstracts for both papers and posters from postgraduate researchers, early careers researchers or independent archaeologists. Click here to download our abstract submission form.

We would also encourage poster abstracts from Masters students who wish to present the results of their dissertations, or new PhD students wanting to present their key research interests and research questions.

If you are interested in attending but not giving a paper or creating a poster we will be opening registration in July , so keep an eye out for further information or email us to be put on our email list.

email: l.b.cummings@ncl.ac.uk or nebarss2015@gmail.com

We hope to hear from you soon!

12th Annual Postgraduate Forum Conference 2015

School of History, Classics, and Archaeology, Newcastle University

22nd May 2015

 ‘Disruptions’

This interdisciplinary one-day conference seeks to bring together students from across the country to reflect on the continuous ‘disruption’ within historical disciplines.

How do we recognise and define these disruptions? Does the term ‘disruption’ have any genuine utility?  How did people respond to disruption? How did they cope when disruptions affected their personal life? Can we look at disruptions on a macro and micro scale?  How do we deal with disruptions to scholarly narratives when new theories, interpretations, and material are discovered?

We are seeking proposals for individual twenty-minute papers from historians, archaeologists, classicists, and ancient historians. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Historiographical Disruptions
  • Material Disruptions
  • Disruptions of Landscape
  • Political Disruptions
  • Social Disruptions
  • Economic Disruptions
  • Ideological/Philosophical Disruptions
  • Religious Disruptions
  • Medical Disruptions
  • Urban or Rural Disruptions
  • Disruption of Memory
  • Natural or Environmental Disruption
  • Textual Disruptions
  • Narrative Disruptions

We also invite poster submissions from postgraduate students. The posters do not necessarily need to be on the conference theme, but rather are a way to begin to present your work in the earlier stages of your research.

Keynote Speaker to be confirmed.

Please send abstracts of 300-500 words for papers, and 150-200 words for posters, along with a title to Amy Shields (amy.shields@ncl.ac.uk) by 27th March 2015.
