CALL:


While the commonly used means of iconography, iconology and reception are welcomed, we would like to explore whether and how the contemporary approaches to the visual culture – the natural sciences inclusive – can contribute to the study of ancient societies; we seek to discuss the semantic level of the use of specific themes in distinct contexts, the variations in the depiction schemes and their evolvement depending on external influences (i.e. the medium as well as cultural influences), the social meaning of decorative principles or the interrelation between the visual aspects and the room/space use within an urban area. These and further questions should allow us to understand the visual culture as an inherent part of the ancient world relating to its functional, chronological and social context.

We invite abstracts of no more than 500 words for 20 minute papers, followed by 10 minutes of discussion, to be submitted by October 15th 2019 to the organizing committee (pecla.conference@ff.cuni.cz). If you have an questions, please don't hesitate to contact us!
