Seen on various lists:
The University of Birmingham would like to invite papers from postgraduate
students and early career researchers for Day One of a colloquium, taking
place from the 5th to the 6th of July 2010 on:
‘Cultural Memory and Religion in the Ancient City’
The possibilities offered by Cultural Memory as a methodological tool
for reading and understanding modes of behaviour in antiquity have
been steadily gaining currency in recent years. The aim of this
interdisciplinary colloquium is to bring together scholars and research
students working on the texts and material culture of the ancient world
in order to exchange ideas and approaches relating to using Cultural
Memory to analyse religion in various ancient urban contexts.
The colloquium will be arranged over two days; papers given on the
first day will explore new research by postgraduates and early
careerists currently working on Cultural Memory in ancient societies.
On the second day we will turn our gaze on Rome as a case study
for lieux de mémoire with papers given by invited scholars.
