Conference 2021

15th September 2021, 14:00 – 22:30 hrs BST

Following the success of our monthly round table sessions, we are pleased to host the first Online Teaching and Learning in Archaeology and Heritage Conference.

This free, online event is open to all who teach and learn in archaeology. Papers will specifically focus on Higher Education, and consider the past, present and future of teaching and learning in archaeology. To attend please register below.

Call for Papers – NOW CLOSED

We are looking for short position papers on your teaching and learning in archaeology and heritage – what are you doing differently? What is working well? What should others avoid? We are open to a range of topics, but particularly invite papers on decolonization, indigenising, neurodiversity, and inclusivity. We invite speakers from any demographic background, gender, dis/ability.

Conference Code of Conduct

We are committed to ensuring that our roundtables and conferences provide a safe environment for all participants, built on mutual respect. We promote a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of sex, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, career stage, or religion (or lack thereof).

We will not tolerate harassment in any form at any of our events. Harassment includes, but is not restricted to, offensive comments or behaviour, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, whether related to sex, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, career stage, religion (or lack thereof), or other factors.

Outside of research presentations that include considerations of sexuality or sexual representations in the past, sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, social events, social media, and other online media. Our roundtables and conference operate online, and we will not tolerate inappropriate online contact or unwelcome sexual attention directed towards roundtable and conference attendees.

Persons asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately, and will be removed from any online event should they fail to do so.

*This code of conduct was inspired by that created by the Society for Post Medieval Archaeology for their annual conferences (Code of Conduct – #PMAC21) and, with enormous thanks to them, we have drawn upon much of their wording. We will continue to review and adapt this document and are always grateful for feedback and guidance so please do get in touch at archaeologytandl@gmail.com  if you think there is anything else we should include.
