Call for Papers: ARC 36.2 Text and Image

Call for Papers: ARC 36.2
Text and Image

The Archaeological Review from Cambridge is pleased to invite submissions for our next issue (36.2), which will focus on the interplay between text and image and analysis of the cognitive power of these two practices in relation to each other.  We understand texts and images as communication systems, where the intrinsic ambiguity of ‘reading’ and ‘seeing’ creates culturally-specific phenomena that are both valued and manipulated by their makers and intended recipients.

Please see the attached Call for Papers for more details, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or to register interest (arc.textandimage@gmail.com) by  15 January 2021.  We welcome contributions from researchers at any stage of their academic career and from all related disciplines. Papers of no more than 4000 words should be submitted by 28 February 2021, for publication in November 2021.

The Archaeological Review from Cambridge (ARC) is a full peer-reviewed biannual academic journal of archaeology. It is managed and published on a non-profit, voluntary basis by postgraduate researchers in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. Rooted primarily in archaeological theory and practice, ARC invites a wide range of perspectives aiming at interdisciplinary research of interest to those engaged in a variety of fields. All papers are published Open Access. Further information on the Archaeological Review from Cambridge, including submission guidelines, may be found at http://arc.soc.srcf.net .

Fieldwork Opportunity: Blackfriary Archaeology Field School – Summer 2021

The Blackfriary Archaeological Field School (BAFS) been providing archaeological training and internships to university students (see www.bafs.ie) since 2010. While at a time of pandemic and uncertainty it is difficult for staff and students to plan ahead for study abroad experiences, BAFS would like to assure you that our field school activities are fully compliant with health and safety in light of Covid 19 and it helps greatly that our activities are predominantly outdoors.

The Blackfriary Archaeology Field School is part of the award-winning Blackfriary Community Heritage and Archaeology Project (BCHAP) in the town of Trim, County Meath, Ireland. Focusing on the buried remains of the 13th century AD/CE Dominican friary and associated graveyard, the field school is suitable for students from a wide range of backgrounds including archaeology, history, anthropology, and forensics – and for students looking for a unique study abroad experience. As participants in a public archaeology project, students are actively engaged with our outreach activities on site. They are also housed with families in Trim, allowing them to integrate with the local community.

We are offering two courses in summer 2021 (BAFS Summer courses), as well as internship opportunities (BAFS Internships). The four-week course, 2 sessions from 4 – 28 May and 1 – 25 June, provides training in excavation and post-excavation methods. The five-week course, from 30 June to 30 July 2021, includes a significant bioarchaeology component taught by Dr. Rachel Scott of DePaul University, Chicago, as well as general excavation techniques. We hope to be able to grant 10 ECTS credits (generally equivalent to 5 American semester credits) for these courses and can confirm this with you soon. For students with previous field and/or lab experience, we offer internships for a minimum of six weeks in the areas of excavation, post-excavation, and community outreach. You can find more information on our brochure (BAFS Flyer), through the links to our social media pages below, or on our website at http://bafs.ie/
