Late Antiquity - last CFP
- LAST CALL FOR PAPERS:
LATE ANTIQUITY and PROSOPOGRAPHY
The Society for Late Antiquity will be sponsoring three sessions at
the International Medieval Studies Congress, May 4-7, 2006, at
Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. As in the past,
topics are open. One page abstracts for 15-minute papers are invited
relating to the history, literature, religion, art, archaeology,
culture, and society of Late Antiquity (that is, the European, North
African, and Western Asian world ca. 250 750). Attention should be
given to how the paper relates to Late Antiquity as a discrete
period with its own individual characteristics. Abstracts also are
being accepted for a session on "Early Medieval Prosopogography"
(ca. 250-750) sponsored by Medieval Prosopograpy.
Abstracts may be forwarded, preferably by e mail, to Ralph Mathisen
at ralphwm@... ruricius@.... Deadline for receipt of
abstracts is September 10, 2005.
Please note that with the exception of a few awards (information
available from conference organizers:
http://www.wmich.edu/medieval/congress ) there is no travel funding
available for participants, and that the submission of an abstract
carries with it a commitment to attend the conference should the
abstract be accepted.
Thank you, and with apologies for cross-posting,
