The research group “Antiquity and its Reception” (CHAM – Centre for the Humanities) will be hosting an international symposium subjected to the theme “Migration and Colonization in the Mediterranean during the first Millennium BC”. This meeting will be held at NOVA FCSH, on the 22nd and 23rd November 2018.
The symposium proposes a debate on approaches to migration, colonization and cross-cultural contacts across the Mediterranean basin.
DEADLINE: 30th August, 2018
Since the dawn of time, people and material culture travelled across the Mediterranean Sea. However, during the first millennium BC, the region witnessed an unprecedented movement of people in large migratory waves, establishing colonies overseas. The Mediterranean thus became a wide trade network. The resources being explored, traded and consumed by the ancient Mediterranean societies encompassed human labor, metals, agricultural products, and processed goods. In addition, the Inner Sea also offered the means for cultural contacts and the transfer of knowledge and technologies.
The arrival of new colonial settlements and migrants also created areas of colonial encounters. Colonial relations in particular have shaped the interest in the travel of material culture and style across borders. Such interactions have often been used to debate the ethnic identity of the receiving culture.
We invite researchers who work these chronological and spatial contexts on the perspectives of History, Archaeology, Art History, Cultural History, Anthropology and other Social Sciences, to participate in this symposium to promote an interdisciplinary debate on the subject matter. The presentation should not exceed 20 minutes and should address a case study or a comparative approach to ancient colonial experiences.
We intend to publish the proceedings of this Symposium in an open-access and peer-reviewed volume.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 30th, August 2018. They should be no longer than 200 words and accompanied by 5 keywords plus the institutional affiliation of the proponent.
The e-mail for submission of the proposals is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
