Dear Colleagues,We have great pleasure in inviting you to take part in the International Conference:
Communities inTransition: The Circum-Aegean Later Neolithic Stages (c. 5000/4800-3200/3000 BC)
on June 7th to9th 2013 and to deliver a paper on that occasion.
THE TOPIC
The topic of the conference is the relatively long period of the Later Neolithic until (and including)the transition to the Early Bronze Age (1500-2000 years, depending on geographical area) in theregion that is located around the Aegean Sea. Many different names for this period (e.g. Final Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Eneolithic, Late Neolithic Ib, II, Copper Age) are used by colleagues withdifferent scholarly backgrounds. Despite the differences in terminology, the archaeological evidenceshows many similar traits over a broad geographical area from the Danube in the north to Anatoliain the east and to Crete and Cyprus in the south, suggesting that the underlying social and cultural processes that created them are, broadly speaking, similar. The Late Neolithic I (especially its later stages) is included, since many of the features observed in the following periods have its roots inthis phase. During the Later Neolithic stages this geographic area provided a stage for processes thatled to important changes in material culture and the use of space, the adoption of metallurgical practices, establishment of far-reaching interaction and exchange networks, and increased socialcomplexity.The conference has two principal aims:(1) to bring together colleagues who conduct research in the region and provide a venue for exchanging ideas and clarifying the use of concepts, and (2) to provide a forum for presentation of new research data and ideas that can help us to produce new perspectives on the period in question.The topics to be treated by the conference are organized under the following headings:1.Presentation of new material and interpretation of archaeological data2. Economy, society, and technology3. Chronology and terminology4.Synthesis – The Aegean and adjacent areas, relations and interactions
