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 ( by  14 February 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 March 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 .

CFP: Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology

Journal of Intercultural and Interdisciplinary Archaeology
05/2021 – Thematic issue: “Carriages”

Carriages were very important tools in antiquity. They were used in everyday life for transportation. There were certainly very important in war at least in certain periods. Deities and heroes were imagined to use carriages, sometimes fantastic ones flying in the sky, being driven by winged horses. These instruments became important also in the Panhellenic games. They are sometimes found in exceptionally lavish tombs. Unfortunately there is no comprehensive book which describes them in detail, which focuses on the animals used for traction, which gives a rich set of examples of representations of carriages in the visual evidence and finally which specifies the architectural context of their uses. Thus there is need of a new book on the issue. This volume hopefully would fill this gap in the existing bibliography.
