On the other hand, we welcome study proposal on identities, alterities and differences within the social structures, the study of socio-economic and power inequalities, cultural approaches to building of collective identities in the ancient period (800 BCE-800 CE). 
Attention to processes of transformation, spaces of interconnection and critical periodisation as e.g. Late Antiquity will be of special interest. 
Draft projects could also encompasse research into other historical periods and settings, which relate to the ancient world through reception/heritage/contrast of models or other kind of connection. 
A significant comparative approach between different historical contexts of the ancient world is of potential interest as well.
