Rewriting World Archaeology: Dialogues on the Archaeology of the Global South

The workshop(s) for this project will take place in Bangladesh, India, Lebanon, South Africa, Syrian Arab Republic, and Tanzania.
Project status

Antiquity, a leading world archaeology journal, in partnership with Co-Investigators in the Global South and at Durham University, will work with early career researchers from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa to overcome entrenched inequalities and develop their careers. The three teams of regional mentors will share their international networks, outstanding editorial expertise, and experience of writing workshops in a structured twelve-month programme. This will combine online resources, mentoring and workshops, culminating in a global summit and opportunities to publish in Antiquity and the Journal of the British Academy. Guidance and practical work will focus on writing high impact publications and grant-winning proposals, extending the reach of research for public and economic benefit, and international network and career building. In the process, these workshops will generate a sustainable, mutually supportive, and expansive fellowship dedicated to seeing the Global South play a prominent part in rewriting world archaeology.
