Call for Papers: Edinburgh Conference on Late Antiquity for Postgraduates April 21-22, 2016



University of Edinburgh
April 21-22, 2016
Since
its creation as a distinct discipline, the field of late antique
studies has undergone many transformations and reinterpretations. As
this exciting and still evolving field establishes its own place in
academia, we feel it is integral for those studying Late Antiquity at
the postgraduate level to meet and work together in creating the future
of our field. And what better place to do this than the University of
Edinburgh, an established and thriving centre for Late Antiquity in the
beautiful ‘Athens of the North’.

Our inaugural
Edinburgh Postgraduate Conference on Late Antiquity will take place at
the University of Edinburgh from April 21-22, 2016. This
cross-disciplinary conference is intended to bring together
postgraduates and early career researchers from across the UK and abroad
whose research focuses on any aspect of Late Antiquity. We welcome
submissions from disciplines including (but not limited to) history,
literature, archaeology, classics, art and architecture, and divinity.
The conference aims to provide a forum to meet fellow postgraduates of
Late Antiquity and discuss our current research and enthusiasm for the
field.

We invite postgraduate students and early
career researchers to submit abstracts for papers (or proposals for
panels) on any aspect of Late Antiquity. Papers should be 20 minutes in
length and will be followed by a 10 minute discussion period. Please
submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to edinburghlateantiquity@gmail.com by February 15, 2016.
