XI Congress on medieval and modern period mediterranean ceramics
Antalya, 19 to 23 October 2015

The Eleventh Congress on Medieval and Modern Period Mediterranean Ceramics of
AIECM3 organized by Vehbi Koç Ankara Research Center (VEKAM www. vekam.org.tr)
of Koç University will be held in Akmed, Antalya / Turkey (http://akmed.kaleicimuzesi.
com/en/) on 19-23 October 2015. AIECM3 is an international association for the
study of medieval and modern pottery in the Mediterranean. It organizes the
Medieval and Modern Pottery International Conference (CICM3) every three year
and also programs innovative thematic workshops. The work of the association
has been essential for new achievements and significant reflections about history
of pottery. The Congress of AIECM3 to be held for the first time in Turkey proposes
to make an introduction and an overview of research conducted specifically in the
eastern part of the Mediterranean. This will expose the state of research that has
multiplied in recent years in the field of medieval and modern period archaeological
studies showing new results from random and systematic discoveries to excavation
of shipwrecks. Ceramic kilns, workshops and various productions are also regularly
unearthed, which testify to the presence and the superposition of different
temporary and sedentary civilizations in the Middle East and Anatolia. Architectural
ceramics mainly tiles is an urban monumental decoration of importance, sharing
techniques and themes with their equivalents in the eastern and western
Mediterranean. Consequently, imports and exports of ceramic show not only trade
routes, but also transfer of taste between different civilizations. As a result:
The International Committee of the AIECM3 during its meeting in Montpellier,
November 20, 2014, decided on the following themes for the Congress in Antalya:

Ceramics in wrecks and underwater discoveries


Discoveries in the wrecks are generally left as isolated studies within the general
scientific research and publications on ceramics. During building constructions and
municipal infrastructural works ceramics are unearthed randomly; but can reveal
important information if they can be studied in context of urban consumption.
Conversely, underwater discoveries often provide a snapshot of associations of
production for import or export as well as pottery used daily by sailors. These
ceramic lots provide us with important information about chronotypologies and
trade flows.

Architectural ceramics


Architectural ceramic decoration (glazed brick, mosaic-tiles,tiles, bacini) in different
regions of the Mediterranean at different periods will be included in the program of this conferences

Kilns, workshops and productions

Archaeological excavations constitute the essential source of information for the
study of ceramics throughout the Mediterranean. In the context of this conference,
it is important to discern the historical developments and possible relationships that
can exist between the various workshops, both in manufacturing techniques, the
nature of new products, or the transfer of know-how that can highlight both the
relations between the hinterland of the Mediterranean region, such as Iran as well as
those between different regions of the Mediterranean itself.

Pottery in Anatolia

(from the Byzantine period until the Ottoman period)
The medieval period of Anatolia is a time of great demographic and cultural change.
Various kingdoms and communities have lived or have succeeded in Anatolia and
left their mark. (Byzantine, Seljuk, Armenian, Georgian, the Venetian and Genoese
colonies, Syriac populations, Umayyad, Abbasid, various Arab dynasties of Syria
and Iraq, the invasion of the Mongols and Timurids, different Pre- Seljuk dynasties ,
Seljuks and post Seljuks, the Crusaders , the Ayyubids, the Mamluks, the Knights of
Rhodes etc.).

Import / Export


Imports and exports of pottery and tiles in medieval and modern times will be
included in the program of this conference. It will be interesting to try to see, in
the context of imports / exports, the relationship between the quality of ceramics
exchanged according to the demand of the social classes and their consumption
habits .Similarly, the stylistic influences that can result from these imports and exports between the various regions of the Mediterranean is still a subject of research
rewarding to discover.

New Discoveries

Results of new research and discoveries will highlight workshops or unknown
productions, new technics and/or technology transfer.

Call for papers

Communications will have a maximum duration of 20 minutes followed by a
10-minute discussion and will be published according to the standards adopted for
the previous congresses. Synthetic communications will last 40 minutes. Specific
research will be presented on vertical DIN A0 posters (1.20 x 0.84 m) and will result in feedback sessions and discussions then published in the Proceedings.
In the interests of the cohesion of the Congress, the International Committee
requests quickly, no later than the end of March 2015, proposals for papers and
posters. The final selection of contributions will be made by the International
Committee, in order to prepare and harmonize the sessions.
Paper proposals are in the form: title, author and institutional affiliation, definition of
the subject in five to ten lines. It will specify the type of communication (synthesis,
oral or poster) and the desired theme
The proposal must be sent to the President of the Society (Sauro GELICHI •
e-mail: gelichi@unive.it) and to one of the members of the National Committee
to which the proponent belongs.
