EMASS 2015
23rd - 25th April 2015
The Ioannou Centre for Classics and Byzantine Studies
University of Oxford

EMASS is an interactive forum run for, and by, graduate research students. Our focus is the archaeology of the Early Medieval period, roughly the period between the 4th-12th centuries AD in Europe and further afield. This period, often overlooked by traditional archaeological periodisation, is a fascinating and exciting subject for research.

The annual EMASS conference has become a major event at which new and interdisciplinary research is presented in a constructive and encouraging atmosphere. EMASS brings together graduate research students, post-doctoral researchers, independent researchers, and academics from the UK, Europe, and beyond to the benefit of study of the Early Medieval period.

EMASS has always been an inclusive institution and we encourage papers from a range of disciplines, community-led projects, museum based studies, and commercial ventures.

Please note the deadline for abstract submissions is Friday 27th February 2015.
EMASS 2015 is calling for:
    • Individual Papers: 20 minutes long and followed by a 10 minute discussion
    • Sessions: We welcome session proposals for 2 or 3 papers linked by a common theme.
    • Posters: A1 or A2 in size.
Symposium registration will open on Monday 2nd March and close on Wednesday 1st April; the symposium fee is £ tbc. Details to follow.

We look forward to welcoming you to EMASS 2015
