This call for papers invites contributions for a workshop to prepare an edited volume on the topic “The History and Practice of Archaeology in China”. If you are interested in being involved in this project, please submit an abstract (250-300 words) and a biographical note (50-100 words) to Anke Hein (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Julia Lovell (email@example.com). The deadline for submission of abstracts is 3 December 2021 and submissions will be reviewed by mid-January 2022.
The successful applicants will participate in a workshop to be held at the University of Oxford 22-24 August 2022. Depending on the situation, the workshop may be in person, online, or in a hybrid format. The organizers are currently looking into sources of funding, but the presenters may have to cover their own airfare and accommodation; the organizers can help with providing information on travel itineraries and housing. The presenters are expected to prepare written drafts of their papers ahead of time to circulate among the group for feedback and comments as well as cross-referencing. After the conference, the presenters will rework their initial draft and prepare their work for inclusion in an edited volume. The final papers are to be submitted in January 2023.
