    The Seventh Century: Continuity or Discontinuity?

    The 2013 Edinburgh University Seventh Century Colloquium

    We are pleased to announce a call for papers for the 2013 Edinburgh University Seventh Century Colloquium, 28-29 May 2013. The colloquium is a two-day interdisciplinary conference for postgraduate students and early career researchers. The colloquium brings together scholars from different disciplines studying the seventh century in order to promote discussion and the cross-fertilisation of ideas. We will explore how wider perspectives can be used to formulate new approaches to source material, drawing out fresh perspectives on both the familiar and unfamiliar. Our general theme will be an examination of whether the seventh century can be studied as a unit across regions or whether the period represents a break in the longue durée. What was the level of discontinuity between the "long sixth" and "long eighth" centuries?

    The Face of the Dead and the Early Christian World

    The theme chosen for this meeting is the study of funerary images in the transition between late antiquity and the Middle Ages. The central question will a reflection on the function of the funerary images in a broad sense, but also their impact on the early christian world. The choice of the chronological time also shows the second intention of the colloquium: this is an attempt to explain why the ancient funerary tradition of the image will eventually disappear, replaced by other figures of the representative functions. Through various media - from the mosaic and painting, through sculpture and ending with gilded glasses - there will be presented one of the nodal representation of the self: the human face on the border between life and death.

    Visible and invisible: perceiving the city between descriptions and omissions

    VI AISU Congress – Macro-Session II - Numbers

    The conference will focus on the many ways in which the city has been described, narrated, portrayed and quantified in words, numbers and images over the centuries. Description and representation techniques from ancient and medieval times onwards provide an opportunity to initiate a comparison between different cities and contexts, seeking different ways of perceiving the urban whole in its full complexity.

    The Connected Past

    People, Networks and Complexity in Archaeology and History

    This conference will provide a platform for pioneering, multidisciplinary collaborative work in the field of network science. It aims to bring together the disparate international community of scholars working to develop network-based approaches and their application to the past and to provide a forum for the discussion of the most recent applications of the techniques, in order to ask what has been successful or unsuccessful, to foster cross-disciplinary collaborations and cooperation, and to stimulate debate about the application of network science within the disciplines of archaeology and history in particular, but also more broadly across the entire field.

    Conference, symposium - History

    Religious Practices and Christianisation of the Late Antique City

    Le colloque a pour objectif de rassembler des historiens, archéologues, historiens des religions, autour du problème de la christianisation de la cité tardo-antique, et plus précisément autour des mutations des pratiques religieuses et de leurs conséquences sur la cité. On a vu dans l’interdiction des cultes païens au profit du christianisme le signe du passage d’une religion civique, extériorisation d’un rituel partagé de facto par tous les citoyens, à une religion communautaire, fondée sur l’adhésion confessionnelle de ses différents membres. Il s’agira dès lors de se demander dans quelle mesure l’abandon progressif des cultes païens, lesquels jouaient depuis toujours un rôle prépondérant dans la construction des identités civiques, au profit de nouvelles pratiques religieuses chrétiennes modifièrent les comportements sociaux, politiques, économiques et culturels.
