Conference: “Poles in the Near East” – 2nd circular and deadline extention

In the 2nd circular of the “Poles in the Near East” archaeological conference (June 9-11, 2021) the organizers are still calling for papers to be submitted to the main sessions. We would also like to announce the subjects of the discussion panels. The deadline for submissions has been extended to May 10.

Since its establishment in 2016, the aim of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of information on archaeological research and conservation work carried out with the participation of Polish researchers and institutions in the broadly-defined Near East in a broad chronological frame, from prehistory to the late Islamic period. The call is extended not only to the participants of current fieldwork but also to scholars working on archival material from previous research as well as to the presentation of studies unrelated to any specific field projects.

Two thematic panels have been announced. Their organizers also welcome submissions from those wishing to join their panels.

Panel 1: Islamic Archaeology
Organized by: Karol Juchniewicz (Islamic Archaeology Research Unit, Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures PAS)

Panel 2: Between courte durée and moyenne durée. Transition in archaeology of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus
Organized by: Ewdoksia Papuci-Władyka1,2, Małgorzata Kajzer2, Łukasz Miszk1, Michał Michalik(1Institute of Archaeology, Jagiellonian University, 2Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology, University of Warsaw)

Submissions to the conference should be made using this Google form.
