20th Annual Meeting of EAA (Istanbul): Outland and Outland Use in thePast, the Present and the Future

Dear Friends:
I enclose information regarding a session on the 20th Annual meeting of the European Association of Archaeologist (EAA) to be held in Istanbul in September 2014. The session will focus on the archaeological investigation of the Outlands (mountain areas, pasture, forest, etc.) and management proposals to be implemented from their knowledge.
We invite submissions to the session. You can find relevant information on the official website of the Congress:

Increased urban growth and depletion of rural areas, especially outlying or so called marginal areas, are major processes in European societies today. These processes have shaped our conception of outlying areas in the past. Outlying areas have therefore been of marginal importance in the archaeology of the past. But, when investigated, outlying areas have often turned out to be arenas for a variety of human strategies, and of great importance as harbors of resources and ecosystem services. Outlands were vital both for the subsistence of local communities and for mercantile networks on different levels in Europe as commodity producers. Today, people in outlying areas are fighting for a sustainable future, using the past as a major resource. In this session we focus on the dynamics of past outland use, the problems of today and the possibilities of the future. We would like to combine strategic papers dealing with applied archaeology as well as comparative case studies characterizing past outland ecosystems. Useful inspiration for papers in this session can be found in some of the challenges emphasized in the coming Horizon 2020 call; health and well-being, food-security, environment and resource efficiency and Europe in a changing world.
