The Institute for Classical Archaeology at the Department of Ancient Civilizations of the University of Basel is pleased to announce the 18th meeting of Postgraduate Cypriot Archaeology (PoCA). The meeting will take place from the 9th to the 11th of December 2021 in Basel. The event will be held in a hybrid form with both remote and on-site attendance if the situation allows. This will ensure the maximum participation of scholars from across the world and facilitate a transition to a fully virtual meeting if on-site attendance is not possible.
The PoCA meeting offers an excellent opportunity for postgraduate researchers and fresh postdoctoral scholars (within six years of the completion of their PhD) from various backgrounds and disciplines to present their work on Cypriot culture and archaeology. The aim of PoCA is to provide young researchers with a forum in which to present their work, discuss central themes of their research, meet people who work in the same area and exchange ideas and information in a friendly and collegial environment. PoCA’s first meeting was held in 2001: this year’s edition celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the conference.
The keynote lecture will be delivered on Thursday 9th December by Dr. Sabine Fourrier (HiSoMA-MOM).
