Department of Settlement Archaeology Symposium Series IV

Regional Studies in Archaeology

12th-13th May, 2011

Department of Settlement Archaeology Symposium Series IV, Middle East Technical University.

Regional studies in archaeology have been overshadowed by site or monument focused research in Turkey until recently. In the last decade, regional archaeological research projects that were developed with a theoretical perspective applying appropriate field methods have increased.  These projects most of which involved archaeological surveys evaluating space and time began providing insights into spatial relationships and past human behaviour.  Also through these studies, the process of urbanization, settlement systems, long term developments in settlement behaviour and patterns of land use began to be questioned. With the increasing use of technological advances such as applications of GIS, remote sensing and geophysical prospection a more comprehensive understanding of human behaviour in relation to the natural and build-up environment has been achieved.

 These methods have also began to be used more commonly as part of  research in archaeology. The aim of this conference is to bring together young scholars in the process of writing their theses using theory and methods of regional approaches or those who have recently finished in order to share their experience with other young scholars and encourage prospective studies conducted in this manner. The symposium is primarily on archaeological research however, scholars from other disciplines such as history, art history, architectural history, restoration, regional planning, geology, and the like who conduct studies complimentary to archaeological questions are also welcome.  

 We are pleased to announce that Professor John Bintliff will be our keynote speaker. Professor Bintliff  is a Professor of Classical Archaeology at Leiden University and since 1978 he has been co-director (with Anthony Snodgrass of Cambridge University) of the Boeotia Project, an interdisciplinary landscape programme investigating the evolution of settlement in Central Greece, with the archaeological surface survey of town and country as its central approach. His research interests include the Archaeology of Greece from Prehistory to Postmedieval times, Mediterranean Archaeology from Prehistory to Postmedieval times, Landscape Archaeology and Archaeological Theory.

An abstract of 250 words must be submitted by March, 18 2011 through e-mail (berciyas@metu.edu.tr). The applicants will be informed regarding their applications by March 21, 2011.
