We are pleased to announce that the 14th International Conference of the European Association of Southeast Asian Archaeologists (EurASEAA) will be held in Dublin in 2012, organised and hosted by University College Dublin School of Archaeology.
The conference brings together archaeologists, art historians and philologists who share a common interest in Southeast Asia’s past from prehistoric to historic periods. Its aim is to facilitate communication between different disciplines, to present current work in the field, and to stimulate future research.
Papers and sessions are invited on any topic or theme related to Southeast Asian archaeology. Papers on South Asia and Southern East Asia which are important for issues of long-distant contact and regional modelling will be considered if they relate closely to Southeast Asian themes. As 2012 is also the year that Dublin is European City of Science, the organisers have proposed one special theme on ‘Science, Archaeology and Heritage in Southeast Asia’, for which we also welcome proposals.
In 2012 the conference will run for four days from 18th-21st of September, and will be held at Dublin Castle and the Chester Beatty Library.
