CALL. 30.04.2017: Boiotia and the Outside World. Boiotian international relations from the Bronze Ag
This first Boiotian international conference to take place in Switzerland is linked with the SNSF project Old and New Powers devoted to Boiotian international relations (2014-2018). Traditionally Boiotian studies focus on the region itself and the Boiotian Confederacy, and for the first time both a research project and a conference aim to explore the relations Boiotia entertained with various foreign entities. Chronologically the conference will encompass periods well beyond those of the research project, as the Bronze Age will be taken into consideration, down to the Late Roman period. The conference is meant as an interdisciplinary enterprise, with papers pertaining to themes in History, Epigraphy and Archaeology. Topics include, among others, relations with neighbouring regions, borders, religion and sanctuaries, mythology, influence on local production of artefacts, as well as political and economic relations. One of the main appeals of the conference is that several papers focus on current and unpublished research, since the majority of delegates are involved in or lead major surveys, excavations, and epigraphic projects
