Event Details

The CHAT Group will host its 2013 conference on The Experience of Archaeology and the Archaeology of Experience at UCL in November.

The 'Experience' conference will focus on the experience of archaeology and the archaeology of experience in the present and recent historical past.

‘Experience’ represents a significant concern across a wide variety of academic disciplines and is central to studies of modernity. Increasingly, ‘experience’ determines the viability of heritage sites and dictates their interpretation.

The contemporary heritage landscape—heritage-themed destinations, heritage-led regeneration and branding of place through the enlisting of ‘the past’—explicitly reflects a new concern with experience. In doing so, it exposes major differences in philosophies and taste amongst ‘professionals’ (archaeologists, architects, public historians, heritage managers) and the public. The practice of engaging with and ‘capturing’ oral history, which we might think of as memories of experience, plays an important role in contemporary archaeological narrative. Recent ethnographies of archaeological practice have similarly emphasised the experience of archaeology and its accompanying field and laboratory practices in understanding its history as an academic discipline.

This conference will focus on the experience of archaeology and the archaeology of experience in the present and recent historical past.
