The Symposium will focus on the structures, tools and production processes of the various ancient cultures of the Mediterranean area. We particularly welcome synthetic papers using textile evidence to understand wider economic developments of ancient Mediterranean societies. As in previous symposia, however, presentations of new finds are welcome, as well.
For practical reasons we need to know the exact number of people planning to attend the symposium. This is why we kindly request you to send us the registration form (Annex 1) as soon as possible.
The call for papers is open until 31 October 2018. The acceptance of papers/posters will be notified by the 15 November 2018. The deadline for registration will be 1 December 2018. The payment for the fee must be done by the 31 January 2019. The fee (80€) includes lunches, coffee breaks and festive dinner (3 October). Visits to the Alhambra (with official guide), the Alhambra Museum (with guides) and the Archaeological Museum are available, for an extra 25 €.
Participants will have 15 minutes to present their papers. Papers will be scheduled for the morning and afternoon of the 2 October, the morning of the 3 October, and for the morning of the 4 October. The Posters Session will take place in the afternoon of the 3 October. Posters will also be included in the proceedings. This schedule is still provisional.
The Symposium is open to anyone interested in textiles and dyes in the ancient Mediterranean world (researchers, students and people wanting to increase their knowledge of these fields).
More information about the Congress will be announced at the beginning of February 2019.
