The School of History, Classics and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh is pleased to host the 2018 Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference. This year the conference will run in conjunction with the Roman Archaeology Conference (RAC) and it will take place from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th of April (please note the change of dates from the previous RAC announcement). A plenary lecture will take place on the evening of the 12th and the conference will be followed by an excursion to the Antonine Wall on the 15th. The TRAC 2018 Call for Sessions is now open, and will close on the 30th of June 2017. Applicants will be contacted by email with the results of their proposal by the end of July and a Call for Papers will follow in August 2017. We invite all submissions that critically engage with aspects of current theory and practice in Roman archaeology and scholarship. (23/5/17 Edit: Some session ideas we are brainstorming include: frontiers, peripheries, Roman Scotland, Late Antiquity, built environments, cultural heritage, and theoretical approaches to new technologies. Session proposals inside and outside of these themes are welcomed.)
For more information on the conference and the submission of the sessions see: http://trac.org.uk/http://trac.org.uk/events/conferences/trac-2018/ as well as the official Edinburgh page here.
We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh!
