30th May 2015
Submission deadline: 31st March 2015
Papers are cordially invited for the 16th Annual Postgraduate Colloquium at the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies. ‘Fragmentation’ is as important a phenomenon as ‘continuity’ in politics, economics, and cultures in the Eastern Mediterranean from late antiquity to the modern times. Instead of foreclosing debate on such common heritage in the region, the theme ‘Fragmentation’ provides a dimension on how institutions and various political, social, and economic groups interacted in harmony or in conflict, because of or in spite of such commonality.
We welcome 20-minute papers on topics in all fields of Byzantine, Ottoman and/or Modern Greek Studies that include, but are not limited by, the following:
Literature and narrative;
Abstracts of 250 words should be submitted by 31 March 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The applicants will be notified of the selection results within two weeks of receipt of submissions.
