The call for papers is open now until 15 March. Please feel free to circulate the below call for papers in your networks.\n\n\n\nCALL FOR PAPERS\n\nThe Connected Past 2020: Artefactual Intelligence\n\nSeptember 24-25\, Aarhus University\n\n\n\nAbstracts (max. 250 words) should be sent to\n\nDeadline: March\, 15th 2020*\n\nPlease include your name\, affiliation\, and your choice of session format (20 minute thematic presentation or 10 minute work-in-progress presentation)\n\n*The scientific committee will seek to communicate its decision before mid-April 2020\n\n\n\n\n\nOur keynote speakers are Marcia-Anne Dobres on agency in archaeology and Juan Barceló on Artificial Intelligence in archaeology.\n\n\n\nComputational models used by archaeologists are becoming increasingly complex. We create and tackle ever larger datasets\, include more parameters and make machines learn by themselves. Recent approaches to network theory in archaeology\, and the historical sciences more generally\, have embraced agents\, agency and practice theory. But where does this leave objects? Since the earliest days of the discipline\, objects have been at the core of the archaeologist’s enquiry. However\, until recently\, objects were left heavily undertheorised. With the advance of object-related theories\, such as ANT or the New Materialism approaches\, agency is extended not just to humans but to the objects and materials they handle as well. Does this mean that digital archaeologists and historians are to move from Artificial Intelligence to Artifactual Intelligence? And if so\, how?\n\nBeing a community of scholars interested in recent theoretical and methodological innovations in archaeology and the historical sciences\, the Connected Past Conference provides a forum for presenting and discussing ongoing work on the intersection between archaeology\,  history\, digital approaches and theory. The conference will be preceded by a two-day practical workshop (limited capacity\, open call for participants to follow soon).\n\nThis year’s conference focuses specifically on the topic of artefacts\, human and material agency\, artificial and artefactual intelligence and their place within archaeological and historical network studies. In addition\, we also welcome presentations on any topic related to archaeological or historical network research and complexity science.\n\nWe invite abstracts for 20-minute presentations on these and related topics for consideration to the scientific committee. In addition\, there will be a session on general topics related to network science in archaeology and the historical sciences. We equally welcome abstracts for 10-minute presentations on work-in-progress.\n\nConference organisers:\n\nLieve Donnellan\nRubina Raja\nSøren Sindbæk\nTom Brughmans\n\nGet in touch!\n\nEmail:\n\nWebsite:\n\nTwitter: #TCPAarhus\n\n\n\n Related URL: LOCATION:Aarhus END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
