The University of East Anglia (UEA) is pleased to announce that 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.
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.
