Greek Epichoric Histories Colloquium - 12-13/05/2018, Oxford (England)


In recent decades, there has been a welcome move away from a monolithic Athenocentric narrative in Greek history and a corresponding increase in interest in regional perspectives, which has highlighted diversity and particularity in institutions, culture and experience, and called into question the value of traditional periodisation.In the same period,there has been a radical transformation of mapping technologies, which has encouraged new ways of approaching ancient geographies, and multiplied possibilities forthe use and visualisation of spatial data.At the same time, while these developments have given greater prominence to the plurality of local perspectives, they have not yet led to a full exploration of the spatial aspects of archaic and classical Greek history.
