Turku, 6-9 March 2024

Theme: Archaeology/Heritage

Archaeology and heritage are inseparable. This connection becomes most evident when examining the representations of the past in contemporary society and the social construction of archaeological knowledge and value, or when dealing with political power, cultural identity, and social equity. Archaeology and heritage are modern phenomena tightly entangled with matters of national and historical identity, even though they share different histories.

The conference welcomes paper sessions, panel debates, and workshops on theoretical, historical, philosophical, and practical takes on the entanglements of archaeology, heritage, and/or society.
