Beginning in 2016, TRAC is expanding our range of events beyond the annual conference. Our inaugural TRAC Workshop will take place on Saturday, 30 January 2016 at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, London (UK). This workshop is entitled “Making practice perfect: approaches to everyday life in Roman archaeology,” and focuses on the use of practice theories in Roman archaeology. For more details, and instructions on how to propose a paper for this workshop, please visit the workshop page.
TRAC Workshops are separate from the celebrated Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference, our flagship annual gathering. TRAC Workshops are not replacements for nor local alternatives to the annual conference, but are tightly focused single-day events that seek to complement the annual Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference and leverage its community to investigate particular topics in-depth and in an even more informal and open-ended discursive format. The TRAC Standing Committee invites expressions of interest in additional TRAC Workshop events, and we hope to hear from you about any ideas that you may have.
In addition to this TRAC Workshop, the 2016 annual conference (TRAC 2016) will be taking place from 16-19 March 2016 in Rome, Italy.
