14th Nordic Bronze Age Symposium

University of Oslo, 6-10 June, 2017

In 1977, the first Nordic Bronze Age symposium was held at Isegran, Østfold, Norway. In 2017, the 40th anniversary of the symposium series will be celebrated, this time in Oslo.

Recent years has seen a trend towards disparate discourses, either focusing on small-scale or large-scale, southern or northern narratives of Bronze Age Scandinavia. In this call for papers, we encourage perspectives on the multi-scaled and contrasting Bronze Age, and the diversity and connections between e.g. landscapes, technologies, social practices and materialities. From the snow patches of the Scandinavian Mountains to the fertile agricultural areas of south Scandinavia, along the paths to the upland pastures to the open sea lanes, from the monumental mounds to the mundane finds; we invite papers exploring the contrasts and connections that formed the Nordic Bronze Age.
