The Institute will host the Digital Engagement in Archaeology conference on 8-9 November and registration is now open for the event. 

This conference will focus and enrich the current debate about digital public engagement in archaeology in two ways:

  • from a theoretical and methodological view point, by including papers that shed light on possible frameworks for understanding, practicing and evaluating digital participation in archaeology by non-specialist audiences.
  • with presentations suggesting specific and tested strategies through which archaeologists working in different areas of the sector (museums and sites, academia, and commercial archaeology) may engage the non-specialist public. 

The conference is being organised under the auspices of the Archaeology and Communication Research Network (ACRN) and the Centre for Audio-Visual Study and Practice in Archaeology (CASPAR).

Further details about registration, including the concessionary rates for student participants are available here»

Any enquiries about the event may be directed to conference organisers Chiara Bonacchi (IoA) or Daniel Pett (British Museum).
