CALL FOR PAPERS
Abstract Deadline: April 10, 2009
We are happy to invite you to our first Hellenic Studies Graduate Student Day, organized under the auspices of the CEU Center for Hellenic Traditions. The theme of this year’s meeting will be:
Bridges and Boundaries: Revisiting the Byzantine Inheritance.
We intend to investigate a wide range of aspects regarding the transmission and transformation of Hellenic traditions in the Greek-speaking world and beyond. Special attention will be offered to the circulation of ideas as well as the continuous exchange of cultural and material practices with the neighboring regions. For this reason, a wide chronological span is envisaged, from the Late Antiquity until the immediate period after the Fall of Constantinople.
We invite speakers to submit papers in all areas of Late-Antiquity and Byzantine studies.
Keynote speakers will be Dr. Ruth Macrides (University of Birmingham) and Dr. Petre Guran (South-Eastern European Research Institute of the Romanian Academy).
Presentations will be fifteen to twenty minutes in length. Travel grants and accommodation in Budapest are offered. Abstracts of around 300 words should be sent by email to Cristian-Nicolae Daniel (
) and Florin Leonte (
), members of the Organizing Committee.
