Call for Papers: Anatolian Chalcolithic Workshop

The Anatolian Chalcolithic Workshop is a new initiative that aims to offer a platform for dialogue and exchange for all those interested in scientific research on the Chalcolithic Period in Anatolia.

The first meeting of the new initiative of the Anatolian Chalcolithic Workshop will be a one-day online event on January 10, 2025. Researchers interested in presenting a 20-minute lecture in English on one or more of the following topics are invited to submit a 200-word abstract by email to anatolianchalcolithicworkshop@gmail.com before September 15, 2024. In case there are too many submissions, we will make a selection of those papers that best fit the selected topics. We plan to announce the program by October 15, 2024.


Themes and Topic

For the 2025 meeting, we invite abstracts on new and ongoing research on one or more of the following themes:

- Material cultures and cultural systems

- Chronologies and periodization

- Technologies and productions

- Landscapes and settlement patterns

- Subsistence and economies

The geographical and temporal focus of this first meeting will be on Central-South-Eastern Anatolia (the region between Cilicia in the West, the Euphrates in the East, Cappadocia in the North, and Hatay in the South) during the sixth, fifth and first half of the fourth millennium.
