14th International Conference of the European Association of Southeast Asian Archaeologists

Dublin, September 18th - 21st 2012



We are pleased to announce that the 14th International Conference of the European Association of Southeast Asian Archaeologists (EurASEAA) will be held in Dublin in 2012, organised and hosted by University College Dublin School of Archaeology.

The conference brings together archaeologists, art historians and philologists who share a common interest in Southeast Asia’s past from prehistoric to historic periods. Its aim is to facilitate communication between different disciplines, to present current work in the field, and to stimulate future research.

Papers and sessions are invited on any topic or theme related to Southeast Asian archaeology. Papers on South Asia and Southern East Asia which are important for issues of long-distant contact and regional modelling will be considered if they relate closely to Southeast Asian themes. As 2012 is also the year that Dublin is European City of Science, the organisers have proposed one special theme on 'Science, Archaeology and Heritage in Southeast Asia', for which we also welcome proposals.

In 2012 the conference will run for four days from 18th-21st of September, and will be held at Dublin Castle and the Chester Beatty Library.


Sessions and calls for papers for EurASEAA14

All sessions listed here have been approved by the conference committee of EurASEAA14.


New Research on Old Images: The Rock Art of Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia sits at the intersection of India, China and Australia - three regions with notable amounts of rock art, and it is thus surprising that so little is known of the rock art at the crossroads.

In the last decade we have seen an increase in rock art research conducted throughout Southeast Asia, and it is readily apparent that this area of research is not particularly well understood. This session calls for presentation of new and recent research on the rock art from all parts of Southeast Asia, particularly in the discovery of new sites and in studies investigating sites located in more than one country.

The sub-Himalayan Corridor: Just what is going on in North East India?

It is has long been recognised that the initial human colonisation of mainland Southeast Asia probably took place via the sub-Himalayan land bridge with South Asia: the Arakan Mountains.

Textual sources also document that in recent centuries this area of extraordinary ethnolinguistic diversity constituted a critical cultural corridor on one of the so-called 'silk roads' spanning Eurasia. What happened in North East India during the many millennia between these two phenomena has generally been considered a mystery, with many Southeast Asianists appearing to regard an undeniably severe dearth of data as prima facie evidence that there was no prehistoric social interaction of significance with India prior to the establishment of sustained maritime links in the mid-1st millennium BCE. Subsequently, whilst the cultural influence of India is heavily acknowledged for later periods, many early Southeast Asian developments (e.g. agriculture and metallurgy) have been seen as related exclusively to bilateral communication and exchange with China. There is no doubting the weight of evidence in favour of China's important role, but can we afford to dismiss North East India out of hand?

A young and dynamic generation of North East Indian researchers are now working towards filling in the Arakan data gap, to flesh out their own cultural history and also to enrich the potential for rewarding syntheses with Southeast Asian datasets. For this session we invite papers drawing upon all manner of evidence (e.g. archaeological, botanical, environmental, linguistic, textual) from all chronological periods that will contribute an improved understanding of past social interactions through the sub-Himalayan corridor.

Historical Archaeology of the Khmer Empire: Challenges and New Perspectives

Our knowledge of the Angkorian past has been largely driven by the investigation of epigraphic records and of masonry architectural remains. This has produced a dogmatic attitude to the interpretation of both individual events and large-scale historic processes of the Khmer Empire.

Over the past decade, the introduction of new investigative tools and the expansion of archaeological fieldwork in Angkor and its surrounding centres have contributed substantial insight into the validity and pitfalls of interpretations based on these old sources. This session intends to examine the benefits and difficulties of applying an “Historical Archaeology” for the Khmer world and its implications for future research. Individual papers will present recent works and new data emphasising issues of historiography, interaction of various independent data sets, multi-scalar analysis and the challenges of producing coherent interpretations.

The Maritime Dimension: Nautical Approaches to Southeast Asian Archaeology

This session will explore the current work in Southeast Asia that is addressed through maritime themes. 'Maritime' is a very wide reaching term and the Southeast Asia region is traversed with inland waterways and connected by over-sea highways. Past and present peoples have recorded their experiences of nautical technology in tangible and intangible mediums. To appreciate the extent of these possibilities we welcome papers on terrestrial, littoral, coastal and underwater sites. We would also like to explore archaeological/anthropological examples of iconography, ethnography, museology, modern art, etc. We aim to raise awareness and build networks between colleagues whose work has addressed interpretations of the nautical approaches in the Southeast Asian region. Papers from colleagues whose projects may be out of the geographical bounds of the Southeast Asian region but whose work has contributed to the Southeast Asian context are also welcome.

Organisers: Veronica Walker Vadillo (Oxford), Charlotte Pham (Murdoch) and Jennifer
