This conference will explore models for the transmission of objects, ideas, production techniques, artistic styles, and other technologies in pre-Roman Italy, from the early Iron Age through the fourth century BCE. Through the presentation of innovative and dynamic approaches to trade, exchange, and connectivity, this event will emphasize both the agency of individuals in that exchange as well as the complex network of communication visible in the archaeology and history of Italy during this period.

We therefore invite proposals for papers (30min, followed by 10min for questions and discussion) on various aspects of connectivity, trade, communication, and technology in Italy from c. 900 to c. 300 BCE.

Possible topics include (but are not limited to)…

-          Networks of exchange and communication

-          The spread and/or diffusion of technology and/or artistic style

-          Control and administration of trade, technology, and communication

-          Connections and relationships between craft sites and communities, industries and workshops, artisans and elites

-          Women, families, and production

-          Movement of artisans and traders, and the role of general mobility in trade and technology

-          Local markets and international networks
