Description

This conference will bring together researchers who share an interest in sensory modes of approaching the past and will cross boundaries between chronological periods, geographical regions, and material specializations. Potential themes to be covered at the conference include the presentation of new results of sensory archaeological projects; multisensory and synesthetic aspects of the production and consumption of material culture; the recognition of sensory hierarchies in past societies; embodied practices, including memory; and the dissemination of sensuous pasts in the present. Call for papers now open.
