---------- Forwarded message ---------

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the newly opened call for applications to the

*Spring** School** “The impact of the political on archaeological research”*

in the framework of the international research programme

*“The Construction of Knowledge in Archaeology and Art History in
Southeastern Europe”*

to be held at the *Centre for Advanced Study in Sofia* between *6-11 April
2020*.

Your assistance in circulating the announcement will be highly appreciated.

*Open Call*



*The impact of the political on archaeological research*



*A Spring School in the framework of the international research programme *

*The Construction of Knowledge in Archaeology and Art History in
Southeastern Europe *

*Centre for Advanced Study, Sofia.*

*6-11 April 2020*

*Overview*

How does politics affect archaeological research? Is archaeological
thinking political? Should it be? If archaeological discourse was indeed
conceived as part of the nationalist project, is there a way to think and
practice archaeology outside its ethnic framework? Should archaeology be
part of current affairs? Can it really maintain a strictly academic façade
in a world where heritage, and the past at large, are fast becoming a
political commodity?

This Spring School, scheduled to run for six days, will envisage to tackle
these questions (and some more); bringing together senior and junior
scholars, from different countries and disciplines, the School will aim to
discuss archaeology in the 21st century, under the light of recent
theoretical, social and political developments in Southeastern Europe.

*Structure*

Three days of lectures by eminent archaeologists, social historians, and
cultural anthropologists on the general topic of “Politics and/within
Archaeology” will be followed by a one-day specialist workshop on “The
archaeology of ethnic phenomena and the pervasiveness of methodological
nationalism”. A colloquium on day five will offer the junior participants
the opportunity to present their own work. The School will culminate with a
gallery class at Sofia’s National Archaeological Museum. A number of both
formal and more informal group discussions will be scheduled throughout, to
enable the interaction between participants.

*Who may apply*

We invite applications from doctoral archaeology and art-history students,
recent PhDs and young faculty members (within eight years from obtaining
their degree). Applicants (who must be fluent in English) should submit a
personal statement of up to 1000 words detailing their research, as well as
their reasons for wishing to attend (we expect their research to be related
to the theme of the School); a recent cv; a copy of their most recent
degree in archaeology, art history or a related discipline; and an abstract
of up to 500 words of the specific paper they wish to present at the
colloquium. Applicants must be able to demonstrate an academic and/or
professional engagement with archaeology in Southeastern Europe, as well as
an active interest in the archaeological theory and practice of at least
some parts of the region. Successful applicants will be expected to attend
all lectures, workshops, group discussions, gallery classes, and any other
School meeting or event, as well as present a 20’-paper of their own at the
junior scholar’s colloquium. It is hoped that these papers will eventually
lead to publishable academic articles or significant portions of the
participants’ PhD theses.


*Who are we*

This Spring School is organized in the framework of an international
research Programme on archaeological theory and practice, *The Construction
of Knowledge in Archaeology and Art History in Southeastern Europe*, funded
by the Getty Foundation as part of its Connecting Art Histories Initiative
and hosted by the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia. Our aim is to explore
the regional intellectual potential for change in archaeological theory and
practice over the course of three years (2019-2022); we envisage the
programme as an opportunity to discuss and implement the research
directions archaeologists active in the region wish to follow, and the
implications such a paradigm shift might have for the ways the region’s
past is understood.

*Funding*

The School is fully funded; successful applicants will have their airfare
and accommodation covered by the Programme, and will receive a per diem of
43 USD.


*What to do and when*

Perspective applicants should send their queries and application materials
to Milena Varzonovtseva: [log in to unmask], by *15 December 2019*.
Successful applicants will be notified by 15 January 2020.
