SHA 2013: From Kampala to Leicester
The Call for Papers for the SHA conference in 2013 closed on 10th July, and…
Are you involved in a local, national, or international archaeology society? Are you the publisher of an archaeological magazine or journal? Do you work for a national heritage body, commercial archaeology unit or consultancy?
One way that your organization can get involved in the Society for Historical Archaeology’s annual conference at the University of Leicester on 9th – 12th January 2013, is by exhibiting your products, services and publications at the conference’s Archaeology Market Place. Formerly known as the Book Room, the Archaeology Market Place will include exhibits of products, services and organizations in the archaeological community. This is both an opportunity to support the conference, and to advertise your services to a new, receptive audience.
The 46th Annual Conference on Historical and Underwater Archaeology will include an estimated 500 scholarly presentations on all aspects of historical archaeology, and many more delegates, representing organizations from across the world. The conference theme is Globalisation, Immigration, Transformation – reflecting both the vibrant multicultural history and contemporary character of the city of Leicester, but also acknowledging the transformation of historical archaeology into a global discipline. Centrally located in the heart of the English midlands, Leicester is well connected by air, rail, and motorway links, and an international audience is assured.
Information about exhibiting at the SHA conference Archaeology Market Place can be found in the Exhibitor Prospectus, here. Manned tables for companies, publishers and for profit organizations (includes one full conference registration and one exhibitor staff registration) cost $500, and only $300 for University presses, sister organizations, museums, government agencies and non-profit organizations. Un-manned browsing tables are also available.
We hope that you will join us in Leicester, England 9th – 12th January 2013, at the University of Leicester.
