People of the Ancient World - 13-14-15/10/2016, Cluj-Napoca (Romania)

Population studies for the Ancient World have always been an appealing research field. From demographic reconstructions to onomastical researches and from networks analyses to prosopography and familial micro-history, ancient people are a constant and continuous source of inspiration.Today, more than ever, by employing digital methods and online resources, the study of ancient people is evolving greatly, in new and exciting directions.

As part of the project Romans 1by1, the Centre for Roman Studies of the University of Cluj-Napoca organizes a 3-days conference focused on the population(s) of the ancient world. Our aim is tobring together scholars interested in the research of ancient population froma variety of fields, dealing with the matter from different perspectives. We support any subject related to ancient population and encourage all approaches, inviting proposals for an inter-disciplinary conference. Although our focus will be on the Graeco-Roman world, our interest is not restricted to this area.
