We are excited to invite abstracts for our session at the Theoretical Archaeology Group (US) meeting 2014, which takes place 23-25 May 2014 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (https://www.regonline.com/builder/site/Default.aspx?EventID=1195202). 

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 21 MARCH 2014.

Interpreting the Deep Past: The Convergence of Material Remains, Myth and Memory

This panel invites papers that consider archaeology as the convergence of temporalities -- that is, archaeology as memory, constantly interpreted and reinterpreted. How does the archaeologist cope with the palimpsest of matter and signification constituted by material remains? Suggested topics include: methods of preservation and presentation of archaeological heritage; object life-cycles and their implications for archaeologicalinterpretation; and the influence of contemporary events on the interpretation of the past. Send abstracts of 300 words or less by March 21 to dearmond@stanford.edu and meganjd@stanford.edu.
