2021 ASHA Conference - Archaeology of Transition

2021 Conference logo



Recent events have brought about much change in the way society functions - individually, as a community, as a nation and globally. This year’s ASHA conference pivots towards this change with presentations in multiple formats and webinars streamed across Australasia and around the world. We are seeking papers and sessions about transitions in the broadest sense, encompassing archaeological theory, methodology and/or interpretation, and considering topics such as colonial encounters, environmental change, sustainability and even pandemics

In what ways have we changed - or should we change - how we do archaeology? How can we view transition and change at individual, societal and global scales through the lens of historical archaeology? How have our ideas and interpretations of sites, artefacts and historical narratives changed and where might these transitions lead us next? What challenges are provided by transition and change in the archaeological record?
