    The question of space in the 4th century BC

    Continuities, ruptures and resumptions

    Le volume projeté, à paraître comme un supplément des Dialogues d'histoire ancienne, doit faire le point sur la question de l'espace au IVe siècle av. J.-C. À partir des résultats de certains de nos travaux et de l’expérience acquise sur les terrains archéologiques où nous intervenons, il s’agira de réunir des spécialistes travaillant sur des sources différentes pour proposer un panorama de certaines caractéristiques du IVe siècle. Nous attendons des communications sur la production matérielle et intellectuelle des différentes régions du bassin méditerranéen (monde grec, romain, Étrurie, etc.), et accueillerons des propositions fondées sur tous types de sources, écrites, archéologiques, iconographiques, artistiques, en donnant la primeur à celles à caractère pluridisciplinaire.

    Colonial geopolitics and local cultures in the Hellenistic and Roman East (IIIrd Century B.C. – IIIrd Century A.D.)

    Géopolitique coloniale et cultures locales dans l'Orient hellénistique et romain (IIIe siècle av. J.-C. – IIIe siècle ap. J.-C.)

    It seems clear that, in the Greek-speaking regions of the Roman Empire, Hellenistic models (civic, military or institutional) exercised considerable influence over “Italic” colonial projects. Within this field, relations between military colonists and indigenous peoples demand special attention, considering the degree of social, cultural, economic, political and geopolitical transformation brought about by the installation of certain groups upon those lands as a result of the will of the great power(s) that ruled over them. As for the Roman colonization, modern scholars have often described Roman colonies as vectors of Romanization inserted in alien lands, writing that these communities must have functioned as images of a “small Rome.” While the existence of Latin-speaking colonists ruled by a favorable juridical system such as the Ius Italicum cannot be denied, such a reductionist model can no longer be accepted without qualification, especially in the context of the Greek-speaking provinces of the Roman East. The regions of the Eastern Mediterranean world saw the coming of a number of groups of Roman colonists and thus their cultural climate, their agrarian structures and their geopolitical environment changed. The aim of this panel is to explore new research paths based on broader studies in time and space.
