我们目前正处于中国考古学的黄金时代。近期中国和国际媒体对三星堆等考古新发现都进行了大量宣传 。国际学术期刊关于中国考古研究的论文也逐年增加。不过这些英文文献只占了中国考古研究的一小部分。专家圈之外的外国人对中国考古的历史和进程知之甚少。中国目前正在投入大量时间、资本和媒体报道来庆祝中国考古100周年。其支持力度远远大于包括欧美在内的其他国家对本国考古的投资。同样,专家圈以外的外国人对这次百周年纪念活动及其意义的了解也很有限。考古在中国的重要性由此可见一斑。除了国家机构的大力扶持,考古研究在中国的广大群众中也有着很高的热度。中国以外的世界需要更好地理解这一现象。
本研讨会的组织者真诚邀请海内外学者提交论文。研讨会结束后,安可和蓝诗玲计划将论文汇编成集,以 “中国考古学的历史与实践”为主题出版。我们非常希望此次研讨会和论文集能促进国际学界更好地理解中国考古学的历史和实践。提交论文的主题包括但不限于:中国现代考古学的学术史;重要理论及研究方法的发展过程分析及研究;对重要机构和有影响的发掘的分析和研究;对中国语境下考古学实践的分析,如不同性别如何参与田野工作、专家与公众如何互动、博物馆和媒体如何展示考古成果等。
如果您想参与此次会议,请将摘要(250-300 字)和个人简历(50-100 字)提交给安可( 和 蓝诗玲 (
