[Manifestations de l'Ifao] :
International Conference: STONE CANVAS: TOWARDS A BETTER INTEGRATION OF ‘ROCK ART’ AND ‘GRAFFITI’ STUDIES IN EGYPT AND SUDAN.
Partenaire(s) de l’Ifao: PCMA
La conférence aura lieu en anglais.
Disciplines as broad as the archaeology of Egypt and Nubia, in order to progress, need to develop internal and external communication between various fields of expertise. This conference intends to focus on internal dialogue which may, hopefully, lead to the development of closer relations and cooperation between local archaeological sub-disciplines mainly associated with iconography. Expected outcomes include: defining common ground for research, refining selected terms and definitions, as well as establishing strategies for more extensive incorporation of rock art and graffiti studies into mainstream archaeology.
We invite papers concerning historical rock art (dynastic, Graeco-Roman, Meroitic, Christian, Islamic, modern), as well as presentations dedicated to other pictorial/inscriptional material from these periods. It is expected that the proposed topics will integrate different types of scientific material in order to identify common research problems and some of the ways in which cross-disciplinary studies can be of mutual benefit. We also invite papers on prehistoric and Predynastic rock art and iconography; however these should be oriented towards contextualisation and weaving the imagery into broader archaeological narratives.
The conference proceedings is planned to be published by IFAO–PCMA after the conference. Due to a limited publication timeframe, participants are kindly requested to submit their contributions by February 1st, 2020 at the latest.
