The Postgraduate and Early Career Late Antiquity Network "‘Ideal spaces" - 14/01/2019, Lo



The workshop, generously supported and hosted by the ICS, aims at providing an informal, but focused and constructive, environment for post-graduate and early career researchers to present their work, meet others working in the field, and discuss current trends and issues. The Network provides a single platform for those working on a broad range of geographical and disciplinary areas within the period of Late Antiquity. This workshop aims to explore late-antique perceptions and conceptualisations of the relationship between real and ideal space(s).
