Postgraduate Conference of Cypriot Archaeology (POCA 2013)
United Kingdom, Norwich, 1-3 November 2013
Deadline: 31 July 2013
The University of East Anglia (UEA) is pleased to announce that the 13th annual conference of POCA (Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology) will be held on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of November 2013.
POCA conferences have typically been weighted towards Cypriot archaeology. However, recent meetings have adopted a wider chronological, contextual and multidisciplinary approach to Cypriot studies which POCA2013 hopes to encourage. POCA offers an excellent opportunity for post-graduate students and early career professionals, from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, to present their work in a sympathetic context, exchange ideas and meet colleagues with similar research interests.
There is no registration fee, however delegates would need to make their own travel plans and arrange their own accommodation (see http://www.uea.ac.uk/art-history/news-and-events/POCA2013 for updates).
The conference will take place at the School of Art History and World Art Studies in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA), Norman Foster’s first major public building. The Centre houses the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection, the University Collection of Abstract and Constructivist art and the Anderson Collection of Art Nouveau. During the conference the Centre will host a major exhibition ‘Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia’, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the opening of the University. The university is situated in undulating landscape about 4kms from the centre of the medieval cathedral city of Norwich. It is two hours by train from London and 95kms from Cambridge
Interested participants are invited to send abstracts of no more than 250 words and a title, together with their email address to Richard.Maguire@uea.ac.uk, no later than 31st July 2012. Papers should last for c.20 minutes. Recent conference proceedings have been published and the Organizing Committee would anticipate that this would be the case with POCA2013. All submissions will be subject to peer review although acceptance for presentation does not guarantee inclusion in the final publication.
