"Maritime Exchange and Localization across the South China Sea, 500 BC-500 AD"
The Institute of Archaeology, National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, and the French School of Asian Studies (Ecole Française d'Extrême-Orient, EFEO) have the pleasure to invite you to participate in the international conference on Maritime Exchange and Localization across the South China Sea, 500 BC-500 AD to be held on November 9-10, 2018 in Tainan, Taiwan.
The objective of this meeting is to gather archaeologists from East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe to discuss how the dynamics of inter-regional interactions and localizations during the Metal Age have played out in different areas of the South China Sea. We intend to focus on understanding how various cultures were exposed and reacted to outside incentives and how they incorporated novel influences into local developments, through discussions on several topics, including pottery traditions, production and transmission of glass beads, initiation and diffusion of high-temperature knowledge, urn jar burials, as well as megaliths.
