Monstrous Antiquities: Call for Papers
14 August 2013

Monstrous Antiquities: Archaeology and the Uncanny in Popular Culture

A conference on 'Monstrous Antiquities' will be held at the Institute from 1-3 November 2013 for which a call for papers is announced with a deadline of 31 August 2013.

Haunted ruins, cursed artefacts, arcane rituals and ambulant mummies: archaeology and the ancient world have provided some of the most effective and ubiquitous scenarios for tales of horror and the supernatural. Authors and filmmakers such as MR James, Bram Stoker and Terence Fisher have drawn heavily upon popular conceptions of both the ancient past and the work of the archaeologist.

The conference 'Monstrous Antiquities: Archaeology and the Uncanny in Popular Culture' aims to study and celebrate this long and productive relationship.

The conference organisers are keen to hear from scholars and aficionados of the fictional world of uncanny archaeology including archaeologists, historians, writers and artists. The programme will include all genres where the ancient meets the
ghastly including music, television, literature, film, and art.

Call for Papers

Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to the organisers John J. Johnston, Gabriel Moshenska and Tina Paphitis at monstrousantiquities@gmail.com by 31 August.
