Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology

where: University of Graz, Meerscheinschlössl (hybrid)
when: December 1st to 3rd, 2022
what: call for papers
deadline: June 15th, 2022

The Institute of Classics – Classical and Provincial Roman Archaeology at University of Graz is pleased to host the 19th meeting of Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (PoCA) in 2022. The meeting will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of December 2022 both in person in Graz and on-line. As on-site meetings can be cancelled quickly, this hybrid form will allow us to switch to a fully on-line meeting if it becomes necessary to do so.

PoCA’s main objective is the organization and publication of a conference by doctoral students for doctoral students and recent postdoctoral scholars (up to 6 years after completion of their PhDs).

We would like to invite all postgraduate researchers in all research areas on Cypriot archaeology to submit papers for another great conference meeting. The aim is to provide a forum in which participants can discuss the central themes of their research in a friendly and collegial environment. PoCA also offers an opportunity to meet people from the same research area and exchange current research questions, ideas and information. The meeting is open to everybody, and we invite all interested people to attend.

Please send your paper proposal with title, author’s name, address and affiliation and an abstract with a maximum of 250 words to pocagraz2022@uni-graz.at no later than June 15th, 2022.

Communications should be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The conference language is English.

There is no conference fee. We are currently applying for funding to partly cover travel costs for participating students. More information will follow after confirmation of participation.

The keynote address will take place on Thursday, 1st of December in the evening, followed by a welcome event at the museum of the Institute of Classics.

We look forward to welcoming you in Graz!
