Coins and Visual Media: Influences, Connections and Intersections - 13/06/2019, Warwick (England)



This interdisciplinary colloquium aims to gather contributions from scholars specialised in the study of different cultures (Greek, Celtic, Roman, Ancient Near East, Mediaeval) to compare examples of visual culture adopted on coins with imagery used on other media, both on monumental objects (sculpture, relief and architectural decoration) and on small objects of public as well as of private use (silverware, terracotta lamps, tiles, amphorae, tokens). The research questions addressed in the colloquium will try to gain a better insight into the processes of development and transformation of coin imagery and into the dynamics of transfer and re-adaptation of patterns of visual representation from coins to other media, and vice-versa. Special emphasis will be given to interdisciplinary case studies on the reuse of the same pattern in different socio-cultural contexts (e.g. Celtic and Roman, Roman and Persian, pagan and Christian) and in different periods (e.g. ancient and mediaeval), also looking at examples of later reception of classical models (e.g. Renaissance studies).
