Tenth Anniversary European Meeting on Ancient Ceramics (EMAC)

December 15, 2008

The UCL Institute of Archaeology and the British Museum are proud to
organise the tenth anniversary European Meeting on Ancient Ceramics (EMAC),
to be held at the British Museum in London from the 10th to the 13th of
September, 2009.

The main focus of EMAC is the scientific study and archaeological
interpretation of ancient ceramics. Bringing together established scholars
and young researchers from a wide range of academic backgrounds, including
ceramic petrologists, chemists, material scientists, geologists,
archaeologists and art historians, EMAC stimulates an international and
cross-faculty exchange of ideas and approaches.

London’s EMAC ’09, coinciding with Wedgwood’s 250th anniversary, will have a
special themed session “From Craft to Science”, to promote and discuss the
study of ceramics produced in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. In
addition, we are glad to offer a one-day excursion to Stoke-on-Trent on
Sunday 13th, to visit the newly refurbished Wedgwood Visitor Centre and
Museum.
 
The following themes will be covered as well: Technology and provenance,
Methodological developments, Dating, Technical ceramics, Building materials,
Islamic ceramics, and Residue analysis.
 
We are committed to make this EMAC especially inclusive, therefore we
particularly solicit contributions from non-European countries, and on
non-European ceramics. Several keynote speakers from outside Europe have
been invited.
 
All delegates will receive a copy of the volume that will be published with
selected conference papers.
