The 25th Annual Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference
We are pleased to announce that the Call for Sessions is now open!
The 25th anniversary Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference is to be held at the
University of Leicester from Friday March 27th to Sunday March 29th, 2015. Proposals are
now invited for conference sessions.
Sessions are normally 3 hours 30 minutes long and consist of five presentations and a
discussion. Those wishing to organise sessions should submit an abstract of no longer than
350 words detailing the proposed topic, content and aims, together with contact details of
the chair, two confirmed speakers, and the titles of associated papers. Each confirmed
speaker included in the proposal should provide an abstract of no longer than 250 words for
his/ her presentation. Session chairs are reminded that successful session proposals will be
advertised to encourage other speakers to apply to join their session. We welcome sessions of
all kinds, but all should engage with aspects of current theory and practice in the field of
Roman Archaeology, particularly those with innovative new approaches or that are
controversial in nature. An individual call for papers and posters will follow in September,
after the sessions have been approved. All submissions will go through a peer review process.
Session proposals must be submitted by September 5th, 2014. They should be sent by email
to the organising committee: contact by email
