Modern Conflict Archaeology Conference 2018

20 October 2018, 9.00 AM - 20 October 2018, 5.00 PM

G.01 Lecture Theatre, 43 Woodland Road

The Department of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Bristol is pleased to announce that our 10th annual Modern Conflict Archaeology Conference will be held on Saturday, 20th October 2018.

This one day conference is aimed toward postgraduate students and early career researchers exploring areas pertaining to 20th and 21st century conflict. The conference will be a forum for critical and theoretical discussion and provide an opportunity for both research presentation and to meet with people working or studying in similar fields. We also welcome members of the public to attend the conference.

By its very nature, Modern Conflict Anthropology and Archaeology recognises the necessity of combining a multitude of disciplines together in order to produce a holistic and multi-vocal understanding of the often complex and ambiguous nature of conflict in the modern-era.

The conference will present some of the most recent postgraduate and early career research relating to this ever-expanding subject, and there is a focus on areas of increasing importance for understanding contemporaneous global issues surrounding conflict and warfare. 

To attend you need to register on Eventbrite with your name and affiliation - it is not necessary to print out your ticket for the day. However, we respectfully ask that if you find you are unable to attend after registering on Eventbrite, that you please cancel your own ticket through Eventbrite to give others a chance to attend and with this year's complimentary lunch we can more sure of the numbers.
