Women and archaeological institutions 2nd workshop on Women in the Archaeology of Greece – Call for papers

The 2024 workshop on Women in the Archaeology of Greece will focus on the role played by institutions such as the Archaeological Service, universities, research centers and foreign schools in women’s career developments. It will be held in honor of the exceptional achievements of Veronika Mitsopoulos-Leon (1936-2023), the director of the Austrian Archaeological Institute at Athens from 1964 until 2001.

The 2024 workshop on Women in the Archaeology of Greece aims to explore these different aspects of the institutional obstacles and opportunities encountered by women, in particular:
– the official or unofficial reluctance towards women on the part of foreign institutes and Greek universities, Archaeological Services, museums and research centers;
– the role of these institutions as springboards or, on the contrary, brakes in the career of women archaeologists, for instance in terms of funding opportunities;
– the strategies adopted by women to pursue their career goals. We are welcoming proposals for communications (20 minutes, in Greek, English, French or German).

Abstracts (up to 500 words) can be sent to until 15 January 2024. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in English, papers will be expected to be sent by May 2024.
