Call for Papers and Posters: Reading PhD Colloquium Late Antiquity
University of Reading (UK)
4-5th May 2018
Keynote speaker: Dr. Chiara O. Tommasi (University of Pisa)
Late Antiquity was once regarded as an age of decadence and barbarisation as well as a ‘marginal’ field of study. Those days are over. Late Antiquity has now its own place in academia and is considered a hot topic by both Classicists and historians of the Early Middle Ages, as well as scholars of religious studies, archaeology, art and philosophy in a fruitful exchange among disciplines.
The study of Late Antiquity involves a wide variety of disciplines. Our PhD Colloquium on Late Antiquity will take place at the University of Reading in May 4-5, 2018. The aim of our Colloquium is to make the most of such diversification by bringing together and achieving synergy among PhD Students from across the UK and abroad working on Late Antiquity.
