Anatolian Studies: Diversity and Inclusivity in Archaeological Research and Publishing

Anatolian Studies: Diversity and Inclusivity in Archaeological Research and Publishing

Online | The seminar will be held via Zoom

21 July 2020 17:00 to 18:30

An Anatolian Studies Virtual Seminar with Chair: Tamar Hodos (University of Bristol), Presenter: Naoíse Mac Sweeney (University of Leicester), and Respondents: Shahina Farid (BIAA and Historic England) and Elif Koparal (Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University).

Summary of Event:

Current world events have raised questions about race, diversity, and equality at every level of society. But how much of this applies to the discipline of Anatolian archaeology? Does it still labour beneath the twin legacies of colonialism and nationalism? And has the discipline succeeded in becoming more inclusive over the years? The BIAA’s journal, Anatolian Studies, offers insights into 70 years of disciplinary history, and some of the answers to these questions can be found within its pages. Join Naoíse Mac Sweeney, incoming academic editor of Anatolian Studies, and a panel of discussants for a debate on the past, present, and future of Anatolian archaeology.
