Kleos, the Amsterdam Bulletin of Ancient Studies and Archaeology invites postgraduates, PhD candidates and independent researchers to submit their work for publication in the first issue of September 2014.
Kleos is a peer-reviewed, open access English-language bulletin that
publishes current research, as well as review articles, in the fields of
(ancient) history, classics and archaeology. Kleos is run by an editorial team
of postgraduates of the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology and
coached by members of ACASA’s academic staff.
The topics discussed in Kleos address archaeological method, theory, and valorisation with regard to the history and archaeology from Prehistoric to Early Modern times. The Journal encourages debate and presents research done by postgraduates, PhD candidates, as well as independent researchers in the fields of northwest European, Mediterranean and Near Eastern archaeology and ancient history.
The first issue will be launched in September 2014. The Bulletin will then continue to appear online twice a year in February and September.
The theme of the upcoming issue is ‘Confronting matter’. The production and use of raw materials and technology, but also social identities and agency of objects are important issues in the current debate. Kleos invites contributors to engage in this debate and confront the issues of materiality.
