Call for papers: Fake (and the notion of Real) in ancient and modern societies

19 January 2018

About the event

On the 15th and 16th of March, there is a workshop on concepts of value and equivalence. Our upcoming workshop in Leiden shall explore archaeological and anthropological perspectives on the phenomenon of Fake (and the notion of Real) in ancient and modern societies – objects, contexts, and practices.

Four panels covering each a particular topic shall explore notions of 'Fake (and Real)': Case studies and theoretical debate will initiate podium discussions. We aim to offer space for an exchange of ideas about ‘Fake/ Real’ in the interdisciplinary framework of Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology and Museum Studies. We encourage participants to contribute work in progress and raise incentive questions/ present open problems suitable for debate. This workshop is communicative; we look forward to fruitful discussions.

Call for papers
