Student Workshop

Research workshop for Archaeology students

 Archaeology is a discipline which has obvious colonial antecedents in India. In the contemporary academic context, Archaeology is most-often taught within the History Departments. Students of Indian Archaeology are faced with myriad possibilities with respect to research topics, but very often the epistemological and methodological contributions are drawn from History. Keeping some of these issues in mind, the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore is organising a student workshop on the 26 July 2018. The workshop focuses on exploring research on the past (and the present) specifically through archaeological methods.

Participants will be expected to complete a set of reading, which will be uploaded here shortly as well as prepare short (not more than 15 minutes) presentations of their abstract/research for the workshop. These presentations (can but does not necessarily have to include a Power Point), are a means to communicate research ideas, previously completed research, conceptualisations etc.
