CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

CHAT 2006 (Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory)
Department of Archaeology & Anthropology, University of Bristol
Friday 10 - Sunday 12 November 2006

We are excited to be able to announce preliminary details 
of the fourth annual CHAT conference, CHAT 2006, which will see CHAT 
return to Bristol in November 2006. CHAT 2006 has a web page here - 
http://www.bris.ac.uk/archanth/events/chat2006.html - which will develop

in the coming months. 

The theme for CHAT 2006 is 'Doing Contemporary and Historical
Archaeology: 
Method and Practice in Archaeologies of the Recent and Contemporary
Past'. 
The call for papers is copied below:

'Archaeological studies of the recent and contemporary past are 
characterised by an increasingly wide range of methods and practices,
made 
possible by the proximity and sheer quantities of their material. These 
methodologies form an increasingly significant part of the field's
broader 
contributions to interdisciplinary studies of materiality and material 
culture, and to theory and practice in other periods of archaeology. 
Returning to Bristol, CHAT 2006 takes stock of them. 

The 2006 meeting asks: What do contemporary and historical
archaeologists 
do? In the field, at their desks, and elsewhere? 

The conference will consider, compare and celebrate the distinctive, 
diverse and creative methods and practices that are emerging in this
field 
of archaeology, considering interdisciplinary relationships - especially

with social anthropology, cultural geography and the creative arts - and

future possibilities. 

There are many approaches in contemporary and historical archaeology to 
recording landscapes and standing buildings. To field survey, excavation

and intervention. To the archaeological use of primary and secondary 
documentary sources. To studying excavated or collected material 
assemblages. To undertaking oral history and site-specific interviews
for 
archaeological purposes. To working with communities and individuals. To

narrative styles and finding multiple voices, storytelling and 
performance. To stills photography, film and new media, for
archaeological 
documentation or representation. To studying ephemerality, immateriality

or transience in archaeological perspective. To walking and documenting.

Writing and film-making. Digging and talking. Visiting and recording. 
Often, contemporary and historical archaeologies engage with the
practices 
of others through collaborations - working with ethnographers or
artists, 
for instance - appropriating new methods for archaeology, or promoting 
dialogue across disciplines. 

We invite challenging paper presentations which address any aspect of 
these matters of method and practice in relation to archaeologies of the

recent and contemporary past. Joint contributions from archaeologists
and 
non-archaeologists are particularly encouraged. Papers from emerging 
scholars, international colleagues and from archaeologists based outside

Higher Education Institutions are especially welcomed. Multimedia or 
performed presentations are welcome as well as conventional paper 
presentations. All sessions will be plenary, and will be held in the 
Wickham Theatre, University of Bristol.

300-500 word paper abstracts should be sent as soon as possible, and by
31 
March 2006 at the latest, to [log in to unmask] with 'CHAT 2006'
in 
the subject line.

In addition, for CHAT 2006 1,500-3,000 word paper summaries will be 
expected from contributors by 1 September 2006 for posting on the CHAT
web 
pages. 

The Organising Committee for CHAT 2006 is Dan Hicks, Angela Piccini,
Laura 
McAtackney, John Schofield, Christine Finn, Cassie Newland and Lisa Hill

(further details at http://www.bris.ac.uk/archanth/ 

Expressions of interest or general enquiries about CHAT 2006 in Bristol 
should be sent to [log in to unmask] and/or

All the best,

Dan and Angela
