CFP: The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium, 2012-2013 Academic Year

Source: Kristine Larison on Pantbyz.

The Workshop on Late Antiquity and Byzantium extends a call for papers and/or recommended speakers for the 2012-2013 academic year.  University of Chicago faculty, post-docs, and graduate students are all encouraged to participate!

Our workshop focuses on the Mediterranean World from 330 – 1453 CE broadly understood, including Late Antiquity, Byzantium, Early Islam, the Early West, Slavic Studies, Crusader Periods, and Eastern Church Studies.  Our meetings often feature topics in history, art history, archaeology, and textual culture; papers and speakers in these and related areas, or with related methodological interests are very welcome.

Sessions typically run for 90 minutes (including presentation of the paper with time for questions afterward), followed by more informal conversation.

The schedule of papers from this past year is available on our website for consultation (

Because we are putting together an application for renewal that is due at the end of the month, please respond with topics and suggestions by next Tuesday, April 24th, so that we can highlight these interests, persons, and topics in our funding application.

Thanks for your interest & support!

Sincerely yours,
