Subject: [Fwd: Chacmool Conference 2000 Calgary, Alberta CANADA]
33rd Annual Chacmool Conference
ART FOR ARCHAEOLOGY'S SAKE:
MATERIAL CULTURE AND STYLE ACROSS THE DISCIPLINES
NOVEMBER 8 - 12, 2000
CALL FOR PAPERS
The next Chacmool Conference will bridge the gap between
archaeology, art history and material culture studies, considering shared as
well as divergent ways in which objects and visual imagery are used to infer
behavior and ideology.
"Style" has long been a cornerstone of archaeological analysis, and
has been used to distinguish temporal patterns and cultural affiliation, as
well as deep structuring principles and intentional communication of
symbolic information. Concurrently, other disciplines use the same basic
materials for sometimes parallel but also radically different purposes.
For four days in November, Chacmool will host a conversation across
the disciplines to break down barriers and share strategies of
interpretation. The Proceedings of the conference will subsequently be
published. In order to meet granting agency deadlines, session proposals
should be submitted before 15th February, 2000 to the Abstracts Committee.
Paper abstracts of not more than 200 words should be submitted on the
attached form to the Abstracts Committee no later than 15th March, 2000.
