IARSS 2016

In partnership with the University of Birmingham and the University of Nottingham, the 19th Iron Age Research Student Symposium (IARSS) will be held at the University of Leicester between the 19 and 22 May 2016.

IARSS is a research student focussed conference, designed to serve as a platform for new researchers to share their projects and collaborate with others. As such we are seeking contributions from colleagues currently undertaking research based Masters Degrees, PhDs or Post-doctoral projects. Although IARSS is advertised as being for Iron Age researchers, contributions from those colleagues examining closely related or overlapping periods, such as the Late Bronze Age, are also welcome. In addition to papers which examine aspects of the British Iron Age, we would also like to encourage submissions from colleagues examining the Iron Age in other regions of the world, including but not limited to, Ireland, continental Europe and the Near East.

This year the keynote address will be delivered by Prof Colin Haselgrove. Also confirmed as chairs:

  • Dr Natasha Hutcheson
  • Dr Martin Schönfelder

For those colleagues who wish to be considered to present a paper at IARSS 2016, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words outlining the background and themes of your research. Please also include five key words, separately, that relate to your research.

Abstracts should be sent to: iarss2016@gmail.com. The closing date for submissions is 31 January 2016.

Registration is now closed.
