Gods in Ruins

The archaeology of religious activity in Protohistoric, Archaic, and Republican central Italy

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 30 septembre 2010


Gods in Ruins is a two-day conference to be held over March 20-22, 2011 at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.

This conference invites presentation of the results of current or ongoing work on archaeological evidence for religious activities in central Italy, with a particular view to advancing scholarly debate on periods, places, and phenomena under-represented in the literary sources. We aim to bring together researchers across a range of fields including archaeology, art history, history, anthropology, archaeozoology, and religious studies; and to stimulate discussion of shared methodological concerns as well as sharing new results.

Topics for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
• Methodologies for an archaeology of religion
• Cult sites
• Ritual objects and their cultural biographies
• Votives and dedicators
• Religious landscapes

We welcome abstracts from advanced postgraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career academics whose work engages in whole or in part with the material remains of religious activities – sanctuaries, religious architecture, votives, and organic and inorganic residue of ritual practices – from any period or region in central Italy prior to c.200 B.C. The language of the conference will be English. Presentations will be limited to 20 minutes and followed by time for questions and discussion. Abstracts of approximately 300 words should be sent to Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. by September 30, 2010 with ‘Gods in Ruins' as the email's subject.

Please note that this will be a residential conference at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. Generous support from Oxford's Craven Committee means that we hope to subsidise accommodation for speakers with accepted papers on a pro
rata basis.

Dr Ed Bispham and Mrs Charlotte Potts contract with the College for the use of facilities only.
