Call for papers BCSP_eng

Dear friend and colleague,

As most of you already knows, the BCSP (Bollettino del Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici) is the archaeological journal published by the “Edizioni del Centro”, the publishing house of the Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici (CCSP), focused mainly on Rock art and on the prehistoric and tribal art more in general. This periodical journal contains current articles, research reports and surveys on recent discoveries throughout the world.

With the organization of the successful 20th INTERNATIONAL ROCK ART CONGRESS IFRAO 2018, the publication of the BCSP has been postponed for one year. It is now our priority to recuperate this time and we will now proceed to the publication of the number 44, 45 and 46 of the BCSP by the end of the 2019.

The editorial board welcomes two kinds of original contributions to be considered for publication: papers (60.000 characters) and short news (15.000 characters). The texts must be in English, French or Italian.

We would like to remember that the proposed papers for the publication the BCSP will undergo the process of double blind review.

Please send your contribution to our editorial staff at the address:

Looking forward to hear from you

Best regards

Tiziana Cittadini
Director of the CCSP

Corso di perfezionamento in Rilevamento dell’Arte Rupestre 2018

Il Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici è lieto di proporre in collaborazione con UNIMI il Corso di perfezionamento in Rilevamento dell’Arte Rupestre 2018 dal titolo:

Nuove metodologie per la documentazione e la gestione di un patrimonio montano e vallivo

Il Corso di perfezionamento in “Rilevamento dell’Arte Rupestre. Nuove metodologie per la documentazione e gestione di un patrimonio montano e vallivo” viene proposto da “Università della Montagna” (Università degli Studi di Milano sede di Edolo) in collaborazione con il Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici al fine di formare nuovi professionisti e trasformare il patrimonio storico-culturale in una leva per la valorizzazione e la crescita economica dei territori. Il Corso è una specializzazione post-laurea che conferisce un titolo accademico.
Il programma prevede di fornire ai partecipanti un sguardo “allargato” sia geograficamente che cronologicamente, e di mettere a sistema discipline complementari, utili per fornire nozioni, metodologie e arricchire l’esperienza sul campo di futuri specialisti in arte rupestre.
Le lezioni prevedono sessioni teoriche e pratiche di topografia con uso di sistemi GPS, creazione e gestione di database, nozioni di archeologia e geomorfologia della montagna, metodologia e raccolta dati sull’arte rupestre.

Il Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici (con esperienza maturata in 50 anni di attività) e UNIMONT propongono questo corso di formazione professionale e di specializzazione nel settore delle scienze umane e dei beni culturali con una doppia modalità, teorico e pratica direttamente in campo.
Il Corso di Perfezionamento apre la possibilità di apprendimento e applicazioni agli studenti e laureati europei, offrendo lezioni e contributi da parte di professori e professionisti italiani e internazionali e mettendo a disposizione la rete di esperti che il Centro ha saputo intessere nel tempo con università e centri di ricerca di tutta Europa.
Strumenti professionali acquisiti
Alla fine del Corso di Perfezionamento i partecipanti potranno padroneggiare una serie di nozioni teoriche e di strumenti pratici utili per lavorare in molteplici ambiti legati all’arte rupestre ed in particolare di: (1) acquisire il background teorico necessario per situare il fenomeno studiato all’interno di un quadro cronologico e culturale; (2) padroneggiare diverse metodologie di rilievo e gestione dei dati con particolare interesse verso le tecnologie emergenti; (3) indagare e studiare l’arte rupestre in relazione dello stretto rapporto con il contesto ambientale in cui è inserita; (4) comprendere e saper analizzare tale contesto composto da aspetti botanici, climatici e geologici; (5) conoscere gli aspetti basilari di tutela e conservazione del patrimonio archeologico; (6) comprendere le problematiche relative alla musealizzazione dell’arte rupestre.

Il Corso di Perfezionamento ha una durata di 30 ore, pratica e teoria vengono erogate in combinazione flessibile, in modo da essere gestibili in caso di maltempo e da permettere mettere in pratica gli strumenti teorici appresi durante le lezioni frontali.
Il corso, per la sua particolarità di unire teoria e pratica, dovrà essere svolto in loco; i partecipanti frequenteranno parte delle lezioni teoriche presso l’Università della Montagna a Edolo (BS) e il Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici (Capo di Ponte, BS), quelle pratiche nei siti archeologici in Valcamonica (Riserva Naturale Incisioni Rupestri di Ceto, Cimbergo e Paspardo). Il corso si svolgerà interamente in lingua inglese.
La lezione introduttiva potrà essere seguita in streaming tramite aula virtuale. L’aula vituale consente l’erogazione di lezioni a distanza, attività interattive di domanda e risposta, sia mediante partecipazione audio-video in sincrono, sia mediante chat.
Il Corso di Perfezionamento prevede una prova finale consistente nella stesura di un articolo (max 12 cartelle) relativo ad uno degli argomenti affrontati durante le lezioni. Gli elaborati saranno sottoposti ai referee della rivista “BCSP – Bollettino del Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici” e i migliori contributi saranno pubblicati.
L’ammissione al corso avviene attraverso la valutazione del Curriculum Vitae. Per partecipare al Corso di Perfezionamento è quindi necessario inviare il proprio CV accompagnato da una lettera di presentazione in cui viene resa noto il proprio livello di conoscenza e le esperienze specifiche legati all’arte rupestre all’indirizzo (allegando CV e lettera di presentazione), le iscrizioni saranno perfezionate a partire da un mese prima della data di inizio del corso attraverso specifica modulistica.

The Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici, in collaboration with University of Milan, is glad to announce the start of the INTENSIVE COURSE IN RECORDING ROCK ART 2018:

New methodologies for the documentation and management of an alpine and valley heritage

The advanced course “Recording rock-art: new technologies for the documentation and management of mountain and valley heritage” is proposed by the UNIMONT Università della Montagna (University of the Mountains, University of Milan located at Edolo) in collaboration with the Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici with the aim of developing new professionals for the field and transforming historical/cultural heritage into a valuable lever for regional development and economic growth. The course is a post-graduate specialisation that confers an academic title.
The programme aims to provide its participants with an “expanded” point of view both geographically and chronologically and to bring together complementary disciplines so as to create ideas and methodologies and enrich the field experience of future rock-art specialists.
The lectures will include both theoretical and practical topography sessions on mapping using GPS systems, database creation and management, notions of archeology and mountain geomorphology, methodology and data collection on rock art.
The Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici (with experience gained in 50 years of activity) and UNIMONT propose this course of professional training and specialization in the field of human sciences and cultural heritage with the use of both theoretical and practical methods directly on the field.
The Advanced course opens the possibility of learning and applications to European students and graduates, offering lectures and contributions from Italian and international professors and professionals and providing the network of experts that the Center has been able to establish over the time with universities and research centers from all over Europe.
At the end of the course participants will have mastered a series of theoretical ideas and practical tools useful for working in various fields related to rock-art. In particular: (1) the theoretical background necessary to place the phenomena studied in their chronological and cultural framework; (2) expertise in various approaches to the recording and management of data with particular emphasis on emerging technologies; (3) the ability to investigate and study rock-art in the environmental context in which it is found; (4) an understanding of, and ability to analyse, the botanical, climatic and geological context; (5) basic knowledge of the protection and conservation of archaeological heritage; (6) an understanding of the issues related to presenting rock-art in a museum context.
The course will last 30 hours over two working weeks (Mon-Fri 7 hours/day, Saturday 5 hours). The practical and theoretical elements will be combined flexibly to allow for the possibility of bad weather and to permit putting into practice the ideas and methods learned during the lectures.
The course, due to its uniqueness of uniting theory and practice, will have to be carried out on the spot; the participants will attend part of the theoretical lectures at the Università della Montagna in Edolo (BS) and at the CCSP (Capo di Ponte), the practical lessons will be held in the archaeological sites situated in Valcamonica (Rock Engravings Nature Reserve of Ceto, Cimbergo and Paspardo).
The course will take place entirely in English.
The first class will be possible to follow in streaming using the virtual classroom.  The virtual classroom will be possible to have interactive question and answer, sessions will be conducted through live audio-visual feed or through chat/messaging.
The final assessment of the course will take the form of a paper (maximum 12 pages) related to one of the themes addressed in lectures. The papers will be submitted to the referees of the journal “BCSP – Bulletin of the Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici” and the best will be published there.
Admission will be based on the evaluation of potential participants’ Curriculum Vitae.
To apply one must send one’s CV along with an accompanying letter that details the applicant’s level of knowledge and specific experiences in rock-art research.

Maximum number of participants: 25
Dates of course: first class in streaming 13 July 2018; intensive course 3-7 September 2018
Accommodation in structures with agreed room rates
Cost of course: 300 €
The following degree backgrounds are deemed appropriate for participants: Undergraduate degree in Cultural Heritage, Archaeology, Anthropology, Architecture, Geology, History, Geography, Literature, Restoring of Cultural Heritage and Environmental Sciences.
To apply: write to attaching your CV and cover letter. Registration will be completed during the month before the start of the course using the appropriate forms
