CALL. 31.08.2016: Exploring the neighborhood: the role of ceramics in understanding place in the Hel


go to CONGRESS


One key feature of the Hellenistic world is its cosmopolitan nature that was created by decades of interaction between peoples from different regions with distinctive cultural backgrounds. In this era of ever-increasing connectivity, at both regional and inter-regional levels, material culture can reflect the movement of people who took with them their own identities and attitudes. In many cases, these features were either retained or melded with local traditions into unique regional forms within the Hellenistic koine. Since ceramic shapes may be related to particular cultural activities and wares may be connected to certain regions, research on ceramic types and their distributions over a wide geographical area can reveal the behavior and movement of those who created and/or consumed them. We invite papers that focus on pottery studies and offer illuminating perspectives on these complex phenomena throughout the Hellenistic Mediterranean and beyond. As archaeometric methods are invaluable tools in the quest to reconstruct the dynamic past, we especially encourage the submission of papers that incorporate scientific techniques.

One key feature of the Hellenistic world is its cosmopolitan nature that was created by decades of interaction between peoples from different regions with distinctive cultural backgrounds. In this era of ever-increasing connectivity, at both regional and inter-regional levels, material culture can reflect the movement of people who took with them their own identities and attitudes. In many cases, these features were either retained or melded with local traditions into unique regional forms within the Hellenistic koine. Since ceramic shapes may be related to particular cultural activities and wares may be connected to certain regions, research on ceramic types and their distributions over a wide geographical area can reveal the behavior and movement of those who created and/or consumed them.

We invite papers that focus on pottery studies and offer illuminating perspectives on these complex phenomena throughout the Hellenistic Mediterranean and beyond. As archaeometric methods are invaluable tools in the quest to reconstruct the dynamic past, we especially encourage the submission of papers that incorporate scientific techniques.

In general, we would like participants to explore some of the following questions: • how may we relate the personal mobility to broader changes in society and culture? • what was the impact of the newly globalised economy on the processes of integration and acculturation in different communities? • how can archaeometric analyses help us evaluate population movements, daily behaviours and activities, and changing customs?
