Research on archaeological practices and knowledge work in the digital environment @ EAA2018

5th September 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 8th September 2018 @ 6:30 pm

at EAA 2018 24th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists (September 5-8, 2018), Barcelona.

In spite of the rapid on-going introduction and development of digital tools and infrastructures for archaeological work, relatively little is known about how digital information, tools and infrastructures are used by archaeologists and other users and producers of archaeological information. Both archaeologists and researchers in adjacent fields from museum studies to ethnology, information studies and science and technology studies have conducted research on the topic but so far, the efforts have tended to be somewhat fragmented and anecdotal. Contributions are invited from researchers conducting evidence-based and applied research on archaeological practices, knowledge production and use in archaeology and other relevant disciplines including reflective and comparative studies of the use of different tools and infrastructures and their implications and consequences to how archaeological work is done and knowledge is produced both in professional and academic, and in community archaeology contexts outside of scholarly domain. The presented work can be based, for instance, on ethnography, case studies, literature reviews, focus groups, or questionnaire-based studies, or on reflexive reports of presenter’s own projects, which seek to examine the own practice critically by looking at roles of different participants/stakeholders, competencies and skills involved, methods, tools, and processes of working with information, knowledge and meaning-making with archaeological materials, either in academic and professional archaeology, or in community, creative, and cultural industry contexts.
