Imperialism and identities at the edges of the Roman world 3 - 22-23-24-25/09/2016, Valjevo (Serbia)

We are happy to announce the call for papers for the third conference Imperialism and Identities at the Edges of the Roman World. The conference covers various topics within the theme of social interactions directly or indirectly connected to the Roman socio-political system operating for several centuries in the Mediterranean and continental parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. The goal of the conference is to enable an open discussion on variety of approaches from different theoretical and methodological positions, as well as various disciplinary perspectives (archaeology, history, anthropology, art history, heritage studies). The IIERW is set to establish a wide network of scholars with different geographic and academic backgrounds and research experiences dealing with the Roman imperialism and related issues.

The main topics of the conference are:

• Relations between the Roman imperialism and regional/local communities, “non-elite” or “marginal” social categories of various sorts (‘global and local’ social/cultural trends and the creation of different life-experiences) • Social and cultural dynamics in the areas of interaction (contact, conflict, resistance, coexistence, socio-cultural creativity, connectivity and networks)

• Complexity, variety and intersections of social/cultural realities and imaginations

• Diversity of construction and communication of identities

• Reflexive history of Roman studies

• Roman heritage

For the sake of clarity these topics could be narrowed down on the following issues (which are not strict thematic sections, but suggested general guidelines):

• General theoretical perspectives and methodology

• Social structure, organization and practices

• Economy and technology

• Military and diplomatic relations

• Settlements and dwelling customs

• Funeral and burial practices

• Material culture/materiality, art and agency

• Religion and cult activities

• Performativity, “daily life“, entertainment

• Reception and utilization of the Roman past in the contemporary world

• Roman studies’ relations with the general public
