Grants for pre-doctoral contracts for the training of doctors FPI 2022 (Ayudas para contratos predoctorales para la formación de doctores FPI 2022)
Deadline: 26th January
The grant is associated to the project TranScapes: “Transported Mediterranean landscapes: diachronic integrated study of socio-environmental interactions and land-use changes at both sides of the Mediterranean”
Topics: Livestock, transhumance, cultural landscape, Roman period, northeast peninsular
Abstract: TranScapes aims to investigate the origin and early development of ancient Mediterranean landscapes through the study of their trans-Mediterranean roots and the impact of colonization, conquest and other processes of cultural influence modulating socio-environmental interactions. It is the logical evolution of GIAPs previous projects and research interests, and it constitutes a significant broadening and deepening of their objectives and methodological approaches. TranScapes will further the analysis of transported cultural landscapes as means for the understanding of trans-Mediterranean cultural and economic links and landscape historical evolution. The study of the territories of two originally Greek cities from the Ionian tribe (Emporion/Emporiae in Catalonia and Abdera in Thrace) and their hinterlands, initiated in previous projects, will be furthered, enlarged and deepened in TranScapes. To do so the project will employ a combination of innovative multi-disciplinary approaches, including archaeomorphology using historical aerial photographs and ancient maps, multitemporal satellite remote sensing, multi-scale and multi-methods survey, bioarchaeological studies (archaeozoology, anthracology, malacology), geoarchaeological investigations, sediment cores drilling in lakes and wetlands, test pits excavation in soils, sites and structures, and multi-proxy palaeoenvironmental analysis of the retrieved sedimentary samples. The latter will include sedimentology, geochemistry, micromorphology, charcoal analysis, palynology, isotopes, lipids and sedimentary DNA analysis, and radiocarbon dating.
