CfP: Talking archaeology - qualitative interviewing and focus group research in archaeology-related communities

Call for papers: Special Issue of the Journal of Community Archaeology and

Talking archaeology: qualitative interviewing and focus group research in
archaeology-related communities

Edited by Costis Dallas (University of Toronto & Athena Research Centre)
and Ingrida Kelpšienė (Vilnius University)

We invite contributions to a JCAH special Issue on "Talking archaeology:
qualitative interviewing and focus group research in archaeology-related
communities". We hope that these papers will provide a springboard for yet
more qualitative research of this type (especially but not exclusively in
the digital environment). We also hope to encourage new insights on the
implications of such research on the meaning and impact of archaeology.

· We welcome methodological approaches, theoretical reflections,
and substantive discovery research on the opportunities and challenges that
emerge from qualitative interviewing, life histories, focus group research,
narrative analysis, conversation analysis, content analysis, ethnography,
and discourse analysis.

· Work may draw from stories, sayings, conversations, and
testimonies by participants in practices drawing from or related to
archaeology. We are especially interested in projects which have developed
outside academic archaeological research and institutional policy and
management work, and in contributions by those who might offer perspectives
from outside Europe.

· We will consider submissions with diverse epistemological,
geographical, and theoretical orientations, ranging from formal analysis of
qualitative data to critical, phenomenological, ethnographic, and
arts-based approaches, as long as they draw from sayings or conversations
related to archaeology with members of relevant communities.

· Manuscripts submitted for this special issue should adhere to the
general guidelines of the Journal for Community Archaeology and Heritage
with regard to authorial voice, structure, referencing and formatting:

The guidelines also include links to an EndNote output style for the JCAH
house style, as well as a style guide, a reference style guide, and a Word


· Submission of manuscripts (4-7,000 words, with 150 words
abstract): 15 October 2019

· Publication: Print publication will depend the time required to
review, revise, and finalize each paper and complete the collection.
However, every individual paper will be published ‘Online First’ as soon
it is typeset. At this point it will be considered ‘final’, and thus be
available for each author to share, use in CVs, etc.
