From 1st March 2017 we will be welcoming proposals of papers and posters on all aspects of New Zealand and Pacific archaeology, but encourage prospective participants to consider offerings that focus on current or recent research in New Zealand. We will also host a student papers session, students are invited to present papers based on their research, either completed or ongoing. Students are welcome to present shorter papers, of 10-15 minutes.
There is a themed paper session dedicated to Gold Mining. Submissions for this session are encouraged to consider: gold mining in New Zealand (or overseas), kauri logging, general early contact-period industrial archaeology, social aspects of goldfields life (including effects of mining on iwi), archaeology of the Hauraki-Coromandel region.
All papers (apart from student) must be 20 mins long, and abstracts must be between 100 – 250 words. This year all proposals for papers and posters must include an abstract when registering interest with the Papers Co-ordinator. The dead line for the submissions is 12th May 2017.
Please send your proposals and abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration
