Global Islamic Archaeology Showcase
Online Event, 26 September 2020
The Centre for Islamic Archaeology, based in the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies (IAIS), University of Exeter, is excited to announce our first Global Islamic Archaeology Showcase. This is a free online event, initiated and organised by several of the centre’s PhD candidates, which aims to bring together early career researchers who are working within the field of Islamic archaeology regardless of geographical or chronological focus.
We are privileged to provide a platform for those in the early years of their academic careers to share their research and to connect with scholars at all levels of their careers, and look forward to creating a wider network of scholars from around the world. We welcome papers from Ph.D. students and Early Career Researchers, as well as those studying a Masters by Research, whose focus is Islamic archaeology and material culture in the broadest sense, from Brazil to Azerbaijan, Mali to Japan.
GIAS invites early-careers researchers working within the field of Islamic archaeology and material culture to submit papers to our first virtual showcase—an opportunity to present current research to a global audience. We are particularly keen to encourage researchers based in Africa and Asia who may not ordinarily have the means to attend a conference in Europe. We welcome papers from Ph.D. students and early career researchers, as well as those studying a Master’s by Research, whose focus is Islamic archaeology and material culture in the broadest sense: we embrace a wide chronological range and geographical focus, from Brazil to Azerbaijan, Mali to Japan.
GIAS is a one-day online conference, divided into sessions, with a keynote event and a relaxed virtual social event to be held afterwards. Whether presented live or pre-recorded, each 15 minute presentation will be followed by a live, five-minute Q&A with the speaker(s). The presentations will be recorded1 and we intend to upload them to the conference website after the event. To improve accessibility, participants are encouraged to submit two recordings of their presentation for upload—one in English and another in a language of their choice—although only the English version can be presented on the day. The chatbox and breakout rooms will be utilised to faciliate discussions.
