A Thousand Worlds: Network Models in Archaeology - Workshop

18th October 2013, 14:00 to 19th October 2013, 13:15, Department of Archaeology, Birley Room, Dawson Building, Durham University (Science Site)

As part of the Department of Archaeology's Postgraduate Research Dialogues, please join us for an open workshop presenting various approaches to the application of network models in archaeology. The workshop offers a possibility to consider and discuss different views and perceptions of network theories in the analysis of social interaction through the presentation of individual archaeological and historical case-studies.

Eight speakers will be presenting case-studies from a broad range of regional archaeological specialties, namely the Ancient, Roman, and Islamic Near East, the Mediterranean, Britain and Scandinavia, employing various concepts of network, for example formal network analysis, actor-network-theory, and wider frameworks of connectivity and relational space.

The workshop is free and open for everyone, with the kind support of the Department of Archaeology, the Centre for Academic and Research Development, and the Institute of Advanced Study. In order to arrange for the venue, please contact Rune Rattenborg ( and advise if you wish to attend.

For additional information please refere to the departmental Research Dialogues webpages. Please note that the programme may be subject to minor changes).
