Appel à communication : From the Caucasus to the Arabian peninsula: studying domestic spaces in the Neolithic

Lieu : Paris
Dates : 16-17 octobre 2015
Date limite de réponse à l’appel: 23 février 2015

Under neolithisation scholars understand multiple processes of social and economic transformation which begin at different times and follow regional trends in the Near and Middle East. It is within the complex relational and spatial framework of the household that these shifts in the structure and activities of Neolithic communities are easiest to apprehend and study. The conference will therefore focus on the domestic sphere in order to highlight and understand the polymorphous nature of what we call neolithisation. Various thematic sessions will be held to shed new light on current data: “Impacts of the shift to a sedentary/semi-sedentary lifestyle” ; “Organising the house and the household” ; “Private space/public space” ; “Acquisition, production, transformation and use” ; “Eating-Moving” ; “Symbolic manifestations” ;“The living and the dead”.
