The Centre for History and Culture at United International College & Beijing Normal University (Zhuhai), cordially invites you to attend an online conference on the theme of the global Bronze Age.
The aim of the conference is to encourage dialogue on the topic of Bronze Age civilizations from Asia, Africa, and Europe, discussing common issues of emergence, transformation, and evolution of Bronze Age cultures. The conference includes individual presentations covering the ancient cultures of China, Japan, Southeast and Central Asia, India, Iran, Arabia, Anatolia, the Aegean, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Nubia.
For a full program of presentations as well as registration details, please see our conference website: https://www.bronzeagecivilizations.org/
The conference will be held online using the Zoom platform. For purposes of attendance and planning we ask that you register by the 23rd of March.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please direct any questions to in...@bronzeagecivilizations.org

Thank you for sending us all your titles and abstracts, we really appreciate this. It is shaping up to be a very comprehensive conference, with a wide variety of regions and methodologies represented for the global Bronze Age.
We have drafted an initial conference schedule to this email. Could you please review the program and let us know as soon as possible if your presentation time provides any scheduling problems and double check your timezones are correct? If you have issues regarding the schedule we will try to adapt it as best as we can, noting the difficulties of scheduling across many timezones. We have endeavoured to put everyone in agreeable times for your local timezone while also grouping papers according to methodology. We believe grouping papers in such a manner will increase dialogue across various regional disciplines.
Please note the following: Due to the number of papers and difficulties fitting in myriad timezones, we have extended the conference to Saturday the 26th of March, so the conference will be two days long. We are hoping this does not provide any scheduling problems.
We would also like to remind those participants who have not yet shared their photographs to do so at the earliest convenience -- this is essential for the website that we are preparing to launch soon. It would also be immensely helpful if you could share an image that illustrates your presentation that we could incorporate into the publicity materials.
Finally, to those of you who celebrate the Spring Festival, let us wish you health and prosperity in the coming new year!
Best wishes from Zhuhai & please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
