Theme: Heritage and Science

Contact: Kristian Kristiansen, Ola Wetterberg and Stavroula Golfomitsou at the University of Gothenburg and Michael Rowlands and Matija Strlic, UCL, London.

During the last 5-10 years we have witnessed a science turn within humanities and social sciences: the breakthrough of ancient DNA, the increasing importance of Big Data, e.g. digital humanities, as well as other new science based analytical methodologies, such as network analysis. Taken together it will likely have a profound effect upon future directions of research, and therefore should also be the subject of critical analysis.

Two strands:
Science in humanities and historical studies
Science in conservation and heritage management

Right now studentship available at UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage, partner in CCHS/Heritage and Science! Find out more about the SEAHA Studentship: Thinking out of the box – modelling preventive

Vienna Genes talk by Kristian Kristiansen
"Genes, diseases, and migrations: what relationship? Indo-European expansions reconsidered"

In this talk I attempt to define and interpret the driving forces behind the 3rd millennium migrations, based on a pastoral mode of production. Kinship system, traction technologies and diseases are evaluated, as well as Indo-European texts. Also a comparison with ethnographically known pastoral groups.
