CFP: The Late Antiquity and Byzantium Workshop, UChicago, Winter and Spring Quarters

Source: CEERES eBulletin.

The Late Antiquity and Byzantium Workshop is calling for papers for Winter and Spring Quarter. Submissions from graduate students with dissertation chapters or proposals are especially encouraged.

The workshop has as its focus the Eastern Mediterranean World from 330 - 1453 CE, as approached from a variety of viewpoints, including Late Rome, Byzantium, Early Islam, Slavic Studies, Crusader Periods, and Eastern Church Studies. The workshop will usually meet Tuesday afternoons in Cochrane-Woods Art Center (5540 S. Greenwood Ave., just north of the Regenstein Library), Room 156, at 4:30 p.m. Meetings on other days of the week are possible by request. Sessions typically run for approximately 90 minutes (including the presentation of the paper and a questions and answer session), followed by more informal conversation.

Those who would like to present or would like some additional information should contact Nathan Leidholm by e-mail ( or by phone (701-436-6052).
