Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress 2019

22 March — 24 March 2019

University of Glasgow

Call for Papers and Posters

Call for Papers and Posters extended to 11 January 2019

The fourth annual Post-Medieval Archaeology Congress will be held at the University of Glasgow in March 2019. Glasgow plays host some of the most impressive post-medieval and later-historical architecture in the world, and has a long industrial history. The venue for the congress will be the University of Glasgow, founded in 1451 and one of Scotland’s four ancient universities. Research on post-medieval and historical archaeology from around the world has been showcased at previous Congresses, demonstrating the breadth of interest and knowledge in our field from researchers at all stages of their career, whether academics, students, commercial, or community archaeologists.

The annual Congress is open to all researchers to report current and recent research on any aspect of post-medieval/later-historical archaeology. There is no geographical focus and we welcome papers from around the world. We encourage contributors to offer 15-minute papers, which the organisers will arrange into themed sessions, or poster displays. Short organised sessions of up to six papers set around a particular research interest or theme are also encouraged.

Please send paper or poster proposals with a title and abstract of up to 150 words. Session proposals should include a title and abstract, as well as a list of speakers. Send titles and abstracts to by 11 January 2019
