The European Association of Archaeologists instituted the EAA Student Award in 2002.The prize is awarded annually for the best presentation at the EAA Annual Meeting by a student or archaeologist, working on a dissertation. Presentations are evaluated for their academic merit and innovative ideas by the Award Selection Committee. The Committee consists of representatives of the EAA Executive Board, and is chaired by the General Editor of the European Journal of Archaeology. The Award consists of a diploma and one or more book vouchers. The winner of the award is announced at the Opening Ceremony of the EAA Annual Meeting. The winning presentation will be considered for publication in the European Journal of Archaeology (EJA).
Students (including mature students), who present a paper or poster at the Annual Meeting, are encouraged to submit their presentations to the Student Award Selection Committee. BA and MA students are eligible for up to 9 months after they complete their degree; PhD students are eligible at any time before their viva/defence. All co-authors (up to a maximum of 3 co-authors) must prove their student status; presentations co-authored by a thesis supervisor must be accompanied by a statement from the supervisor as to the level of their input into the student’s research and into the paper submitted. The papers submitted must not have been published previously in a journal or presented at a previous Annual Meeting. The submitted text should be in article format suitable for the EJA: between 2000 – 8000 words including references, following the Notes for Contributors for the EJA). If the scientific merit of the submitted papers is considered too low, the prize will not be awarded.
The Student Award evaluation committee consists of Cate Frieman, Ariane Ballmer, Marta Diaz-Guardamino and Bianca Preda-Balanica.
Please email a covering letter, CV(s) and draft of the presentation (2,000 - 8,000 words, ideally following the Notes for Contributors for the EJA) to the EAA Senior Manager, Sylvie Kvetinová: (email@example.com), before 1 August 2023.
