**COVID-19 UPDATE: Since we sent out our Call for Sessions on 5 May, we have been working on clarifying our program with the Department of Archaeology at Cambridge, and working on solutions to successfully hold this conference in person. However, because of the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, we have decided to hold the meeting virtually this year. Please visit the CASA conference website for further details. 

The conference will be held on 15-17 January 2021 via Zoom.

It was not an easy decision to make, yet we believe that this is the most sensible step forward as we want to insure everyone's safety.

Fortunately, we have good news too!

We received many high-quality session proposals this year. It was a truly difficult selection process, thus we ended up choosing 7 sessions instead of 6! We believe that our sessions (below) will tackle this year's theme, Diversity in Archaeology, tremendously well. 

  • Beating androcentric narratives:  Women's voices in archaeological discourse
  • Race and Ethnicity Across Time 
  • Echoes from Beyond: Diversity in the Archaeology of Death
  • Archaeology of 'Scapes': Diversity in Environment and Perspective
  • The 3Ds: Diversity, Dissemination and Disclosure of Heritage
  • Archaeological science: Using Diversified Science Methods in Archaeology
  • Interpreting the Past Through Others' Eyes: Critically Approaching Ethnographic Analogies 

The Call for Papers will be sent in late July. Stay tuned!


This year's theme is "Diversity in Archaeology" and we hope to welcome many sessions and papers on this broad theme. 

The CASA conference developed out of the Annual Student Archaeology Conference which ran from 2013-2016. Cambridge then became the home of the conference, and has run the annual conference since 2017. CASA offers an opportunity for students from undergraduate to graduate levels of archaeology and related fields to present their work. Please visit the dedicated CASA conference website for further details and to read about past conferences.
