Globalization, immigration, transformation, Society for Historical Archaeology Annual Conference 2013
46th Annual Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology
January 9-12, 2013 Leicester, Great Britain
Globalization, immigration, and transformation
Leicester is a multicultural city that has been transformed since the middle of the 20th century through its interaction with global networks, particularly immigration from South Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean—a pattern of immigration that reflects the once-global nature of the former British Empire.
These issues of globalization, immigration, and the transformations brought about by those processes are central to historical and postmedieval archaeology, whether they entail the global spread of European capitalism alongside the expansion of European colonialism, the willing or forced migration of millions of individuals from their original continents to new homelands, and the local, regional, and national transformations (both within Europe and across the world) brought about by all of these processes. The 2013 Conference Committee particularly welcomes submissions that relate to these themes.
The deadline for online abstract submission is July 10, 2012. Mailed submissions must be postmarked on or before July 10, 2012.
