Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium

Dates: 22 – 23 February 2020 (Saturday to Sunday)

Location: Worcester College, University of Oxford

Organisers: University of Oxford, Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology. University of Southampton, Centre for Maritime Archaeology

As the field of maritime archaeology continues to mature into a respected sub-discipline, advances and developments are occurring at an ever-more-rapid pace. With funding from the Honor Frost Foundation, graduate students in maritime archaeology at the University of Southampton and the University of Oxford have come together to organise the MAGS 2020 in its third year.

The Maritime Archaeology Graduate Symposium (MAGS) will allow the next generation of researchers in the field to gather in Oxford to share their research, engage with like-minded scholars, and foster interdisciplinary cooperation. From masters’ students to post-doctoral academics, we encourage all early career researchers of maritime archaeology and related sub-disciplines to attend, either as audience members or presenters of papers.

The first day will be dedicated to registration and research related to maritime archaeology in the eastern Mediterranean. The following day will be open for general discussions of methodological advances and legislative issues in maritime archaeology.

Spaces are limited, but attendance is free and a light lunch and coffee and tea breaks are included for participants. In the evenings, there will be ample opportunities for attendees to exchange ideas and explore the city centre of Oxford.

We hope this symposium will encourage early career researchers and current graduate students in maritime archaeology to share their research, exchange ideas, and meet like-minded scholars in their field.
