Nordic TAG 2014

Vom 22.–24. April 2014 findet die XIV. Nordic TAG in Stockholm statt. Aus dem Teaser:

„In April 2014 the fourteenth Nordic Theoretical Archaeology Group conference will be hosted by the Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies at Stockholm University.

The theme of the conference, Archaeology as a source of theory, takes as its starting point a well-known paradox in current archaeology. Our discipline has long been used in other fields as a metaphor for exploring the unconscious, uncovering an unknown past, or investigating origins. On the other hand, archaeology has a tradition of borrowing and applying theories from other fields, rather than developing theoretical approaches within archaeology itself. It is as if traces from the past are difficult to use in theory building. Only recently have some attempts been made to overcome this situation.“
