Archaeology of Religion in the Roman World

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Archaeology of Religion in the Roman World Section requests paper proposals for the following two sessions: 1) The Archaeology of Religion at Philippi. This session will be devoted to archaeological evidence for religious institutions and discourses in the Roman colony of Philippi. Papers that focus on the use of urban space and/or the variegated character of religious activities in an urban context are especially encouraged. 2) Issues of Provenance. This session will consist of a panel of speakers addressing the ethical and scholarly issues concerning the presentation and publication of unprovenanced artifacts. If your paper for either session involves the interpretation or consideration of archaeological artifacts, please ascertain that they have been previously published in a peer-reviewed scholarly publication. If they have not, please submit documentation of their country of origin, and evidence of permission from the excavators or other relevant authorities to publish these items.
