      Call for papers: “Bridging Landscapes”, SHA, 2011

      Dear All,

      We are organizing an inter-disciplinary session entitled “Bridging
      Landscapes: Geographic Approaches to the Archaeologies of Landscape”
      for the 2011 Society for Historical Archaeology meeting in Austin,
      Texas. The session seeks presenters who are using current geographic
      theory or methods for the interpretation of archaeological landscapes.
      The following is a working abstract for the session:

      The term “landscape” has been used to define, frame, and drive certain
      historical archaeologies over the last twenty years. The definition
      and application of the landscape concept by archaeologists has
      gradually drifted away from geography, the discipline that introduced
      landscape studies in the early 20th century. Both cultural geographers
      and archaeologists are
      concerned with the relationships between space and place attempting to
      understand the complex links between people and the varied landscapes
      that surround them. The conceptual divide between the two disciplines
      has resulted in a landscape archaeology tradition that maintains a
      literature largely isolated from the vibrant landscape research in
      geography. This session seeks to bridge the two traditions of
      landscape investigation. The interdisciplinary papers presented here
      attempt to strengthen, challenge and theoretically rejuvenate
      landscape archaeology by drawing on current landscape theory and
      interpretive models from geography.

      The session will conclude with noted landscape geographer Amy Mills
      acting as the discussant.

      If this proposed session interests you, please send us an abstract by
      June 18 2010, or email prior to that date with ideas or questions.

      Thank you!
