The Late Antiquity and Byzantium Workshop is calling for papers for its 2010-2011 calendar. 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
