Call for Student Papers

| Apr 05, 2013
The Statewide Conference on Heritage will feature a full three hour session on undergraduate and graduate student research in preservation and archaeology. To qualify submitters should be registered as full time undergraduate or graduate students at an accredited university. Proposed topics must focus on the study, preservation, interpretation, and/or management of above-ground (buildings, structures, landscapes, etc.) or below-ground (historic or prehistoric archaeological sites) resources. A total of eight proposed presentations will be accepted; four above ground and four below-ground. Preference will be given to Pennsylvania or Middle Atlantic topics, and to well-written and innovative proposals.

We are now accepting abstracts for presentations. Abstracts must be no more than 500 words. These must be received (as an e-mail or e-mail attachment) on or before April 26th 2013. You must include your university affiliation, your degree program, and your expected graduation date. The abstracts will be reviewed by the conference program committee, and the principal authors of the accepted papers will be notified by May 17th 2013. Depending on the number and quality of the submissions, there may be an opportunity to present non-selected projects as research project posters at the conference.

Following the student papers session, a social will be held to allow students to meet and network with preservation and CRM professionals, answer questions about their research, and ask questions about career development.

Please submit any questions and completed abstracts to the conference program co-chairs, listed below.
