  (all the branches of Classical and Medieval Studies). Most preferable are
  contributions having themselves a comparative and/or interdisciplinary
  perspective. What kind of transformations happened (in dominant
  ideologies, in attitudes, in every-day life) during the period in question
  and in different cultural contexts?
Possible sub-themes include
  * living as an aged man or woman
  * Ideals and attitudes towards the old age
  * married life in mature age
  * gendered old age
  * demography of the old age
  * death in the midst of life
  * rituals of dying and burial practices
  * remembrance/oblivion of the dead
Those  who would like to present papers are asked to submit a one-page
  abstract (setting out thesis and conclusions) as an e-mail attachment to
  Jussi Rantala (Conference Secretary), [log in to unmask]
Registration for all those attending or participating is 50 euros, with a

CALL FOR PAPERS
CHAT 2004 (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory)
University of Leicester 19th-21st November 2004
CHAT is a new, British-based, archaeology conference group providing
opportunities for dialogue to develop among researchers in the fields of
later historical archaeology and the archaeology of the contemporary world.
Papers are invited on the following themes:
Conflict
The last 500 years have seen numerous battles and wars. What is the
archaeological contribution to their interpretation? How does scholarly
archaeology of war differ from popular (and profitable) battlefield
archaeology? What ethical and political issues confront the archaeologist
working in this area? What role has archaeology played in uncovering
evidence of very recent conflict, and what issues surround this?
Conflict need not only refer to state-organised large-scale violence. Other
kinds of confrontation between groups and individuals may also be
considered: riots and civil disobedience; national, ethnic or racial
antagonism; class or gender based conflict; insurgents, "terrorists" and
"freedom-fighters" and so on. Papers relating to any aspect of the
archaeology of conflict are welcome.
Industrialising society
The archaeology of industrialisation is about much more than the detailed
recording of steam engines and factory buildings in a narrowly defined
period-based study.  Instead, it is moving beyond period- and process- based
definitions to a more open, wide ranging, and theoretically informed
sub-discipline within the broader church of historical archaeology.  The
study of industrial society is about the whole range of human actions,
reactions and interactions with the processes associated with
industrialisation. The aim of this session will be to look beyond industrial
sites and monuments and look at the wider study of later post-medieval
society as it developed from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries.
Issues tackled may include the archaeologies of consumption, capitalism,
colonialism and international trade; gender and ethnicity in labour
relations; and the meaning of industrial landscapes.  Papers should also
focus on an examination of the social world of the workplace itself -
discussing aspects such as the relationship between 'artisanship' and
'proletarianisation', labour hierarchies and social identity.
Reform
Explicit and discursive reform is a key social and economic aspect of the
period, as well as an important part of its religious and political history.
How evident is a desire for reform, or the institution of a designed
programme of reform, in the archaeology of the period? Spheres to consider
might include religious practice, social conditions, crime and punishment,
landscape and civic planning and so on.
Please submit abstracts for papers, specifying the session for which you
would like to be considered, by 30th April 2004. Papers are especially
invited from archaeologists outside universities, and from those in the
early stages of their careers. Although we welcome all offers of papers, in
our final selection some preference may be shown for papers dealing with, or
of relevance to, the archaeology of Britain and Ireland. All papers must
have an interpretative, theoretical or critical dimension and should not be
purely data-presentation. At the same time, papers which do refer to the
interpretation of particular artefacts, landscapes or buildings will be
particularly welcome.
Abstracts as e-mail attachments to Sarah Tarlow ([log in to unmask]) or by post

*Three PhD and postdoc positions at Leiden University*
Thanks to a generous grant made by the Dutch Research Council (which
normally gives all its money to the sciences) the Department of Ancient
History of Leiden University will be able to carry out a research programme
in which there is room for three PhD students and two postdocs. Since this
research programme deliberately took the idea of a coherent 'research
group' as its starting point, the room for manoeuvre will be somewhat
limited. On the other hand, the aim is to offer all participants maximum
freedom within the limits defined in the research programme.
Although some applications from the Netherlands, Germany and the UK have
already been received, we welcome further applications in any one of the
following fields:
1.      ager publicus during the Republic (PhD project, four years)
2.      the epigraphic lex agraria of (?) 111 BC (postdoc project, three
years)
3.      Romans, Latins and Italian allies (postdoc or PhD project, three or
four years)
In all these cases we are able to offer between 95 and 100 % research time,
very decent pay, excellent facilities and a good research climate.
Those who would like to receive more information on any of these research
positions are invited to send an e-mail to Luuk de Ligt, Professor of
Ancient History at Leiden University ([log in to unmask]), before
April 15th, 2004.

The sacrifice of Iphigenia in the arts
a one-day colloquium held under the auspices of the Centre for the
Classical Tradition (Bristol) and the Archive of Performances of Greek
and Roman Drama (Oxford)
14 May 2004
Burwalls Centre for Continuing Education, University of Bristol,
Bridge Road, Leigh Woods, Bristol
In the last few years the myth of Iphigenia's sacrifice has been the
subject of numerous stage productions and adaptations including those
by Katie Mitchell and Marina Carr in Dublin (2001 and 2002
respectively), and Edna O'Brien in Sheffield (2003). The myth of
Iphigenia has also inspired novelists such as Manfred Brinkmann
(Iphigenie in Petto, 2000) and Barry Unsworth (The Songs of the Kings,
2002). This one-day colloquium has two aims: to explore the relevance
of the myth of Iphigenia's sacrifice at the beginning of the third
millennium; and to examine possible similarities between the current
interest in Iphigenia and other important moments in the reception
history of the myth such as those associated with Euripides, Racine,
Gluck and Schiller. The colloquium will address, among other issues,
the confrontation between public ambition and private sentiment at
times of social and moral crisis, the issue of violence and its
representation in art, as well as self-sacrifice and the politics of
redemption.
