The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology Postgraduate Conference

September 12, 2011

The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology Postgraduate Conference
We go to gain a little patch of ground: postgraduate research in conflict archaeology

7th – 9th October 2011, University of Glasgow

The Centre for Battlefield Archaeology at the University of Glasgow is hosting a three-day postgraduate conference bringing together researchers working within the field of conflict archaeology. In the last decade, conflict archaeology has transformed from a radical sub-discipline into an established, yet dynamic, academic subject covering a myriad of research avenues. This conference will bring together researchers from around the world, providing a platform to present new research in the field of conflict archaeology. Papers cover a wide range of research interests, reflecting the multifaceted nature of conflict archaeology, covering all time periods from the ancient to the contemporary. In addition, delegates are invited to participate in workshops and round table discussions during the final afternoon of conference proceedings. Selected papers from the conference will be published in a special edition of the Journal of Conflict Archaeology.

The provisional programme for the Centre for Battle Archaeology’s Conflict Archaeology Conference is now online:

The keynote speaker is Dr. Tony Pollard, University of Glasgow. He has carried out battlefield and conflict related archaeological projects in the UK, mainland Europe, Africa and South America. His interests range from 18th-century warfare, particularly in relation to the Jacobite rebellions in Scotland, to the archaeology of the First and Second World Wars. A co-organiser of the first Fields of Conflict conference, Dr. Pollard has long been at the forefront of research in conflict archaeology.

We are currently still accepting proposals for A0- and A1-sized research posters. If you would like to present your research as an academic poster, please send a 250-300 word abstract to conflictpg@gmail.com.

For further information contact Natasha Ferguson, Jennifer Novotny or (HARN member) Jonathan Trigg.
