Conference Timeline

Registration is open from, 10th-to May 18th
Programme announcement,  May 10th 2022
Video submission deadline Full paper submission deadline, May 5th, 2022
Conference 19-22 May, 2022

The papers which have been submitted fall within the following themes:

• Accessibility in and around archaeology
• Material culture: connections and comparisons
• Public archaeology
• International links and connections
• Build heritage and urban archaeology
• Landscapes and territories

These themes will form the basis for the organisation of papers into YouTube playlists, Zoom discussions and Twitter sessions. Colleagues who wish to organise a session on a different theme are invited to get in touch with the conference organisers (see contact details below). While we will miss the conviviality of an in-person event, we also recognise that holding our conference online can make it more geographically and financially accessible, and we warmly welcome submissions from colleagues and friends who might not normally be able to attend an SPMA conference. We do however also recognise that fully digital experiences are not the whole solution, particularly with regards to digital divides, and are working to make our conferences more inclusive experiences, both now and in the future. The annual conference is open to all researchers at any stage in their career, to report current and recent research on any aspect of post-medieval/later historical archaeology. There is no geographical focus and we welcome papers from around the world. We aim to make the SPMA conference a supportive and friendly space, and particularly wish to welcome students and those presenting for the first time. All contributors and attendees are asked to read and abide by the Code of Conduct attached to this Call for Papers, and available on the SPMA website.
