Methodologies in Ancient Material Culture - 02-03-04/10/2015, Winnipeg (Canada)

03.08.2015

The Methodologies in Ancient Material Culture conference will be held at the University of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on October 2-4, 2015. In recent decades there has been a dramatic shift in studies of ancient material culture away from the long-established avenues of scholarship that prioritised the identification of objects by renowned ancient artists towards a contextualised assessment of the ancient record. The function of antiquities, their context and their interpretation as part of a wider assemblage of material is now a focus of attention. This conference will explore the different aspects of these issues, and the confirmed keynote speaker will be Elizabeth Marlowe, author of Shaky Ground: Context, Connoisseurship and the History of Roman Art (London, 2013).
