Tradition and Innovation - 03/09/2016, Exeter (England)
The Postgraduate and Early Career Late Antiquity Network is delighted to announce its third workshop, to be held in Exeter on Saturday, 3rd September 2016. The theme will be ‘Tradition and Innovation’. Resuming where we left off last year with a discussion about the periodization of Late Antiquity, this year we would like to focus on the interplay between tradition and innovation. We invite postgraduates and early-career researchers to submit abstracts for papers on any aspect of Late Antiquity, anywhere within the Roman Empire. We welcome papers on both Latin and Greek prose and poetry, history, art, archaeology, other forms of material culture, or combinations of these.
