Edinburgh Conference on Late Antiquity for Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers

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.
