OUBS XVII Call for Papers

Cross-Cultural Exchange in the Byzantine World, c. 300-c.1500

THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY BYZANTINE SOCIETY’S XVII INTERNATIONAL GRADUATE CONFERENCE

27th FEBRUARY – 28th FEBRUARY 2015, University of OXFORD

Byzantium, in all its forms, was an influential society, drawing many different peoples into its sphere. This influence, however, was neither one-way nor top-down. Cultures from beyond the borders of the Empire also impacted on life within it. Interaction and exchange between cultures was both direct and indirect, spanning from Scandinavia, Latin Europe, Africa and into the Islamic world and the Eurasian steppe. Learning, not exclusively classical knowledge, passed not only from culture to culture but from generation to generation; migration and settlement as well as trade and direct conflict all brought different communities into contact throughout the Mediterranean and beyond. What followed could include the translation of literature, the mimesis of art and architecture and religious conversions, as well as the practical adoption of customs, clothing and foods. The Roman Empire, its continuator in the Eastern Mediterranean and all the successor states were deeply involved in all manner of cross-cultural exchanges throughout their existences.

We are calling for papers which explore all possible approaches towards these issues, in all fields of Late Antique and Byzantine studies and beyond, including history, archaeology, history of art, theology, literature, intellectual history, and philology. Possible themes might include:

  • The inheritance of classical wisdom
  • Diplomatic exchanges and customs
  • Translations from Latin, Slavonic, Syriac, Arabic, Persian, Armenian, Hebrew, Latin and western vernaculars into Greek and vice versa
  • Transaction of medical and technological knowledge
  • Travel accounts
  • Religious debates and conversions
  • Military developments
  • Relations with nomadic peoples
  • Trade and the movements of material culture
  • Art and artists across borders
  • Prosopography

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words, along with a short academic biography in the third person, to the Oxford University Byzantine Society at byzantine.society@gmail.com by Friday, 28th November 2014. Papers should be 20 minutes in length, and may be delivered in English or French.

As with our previous two conferences, there will be a publication of selected on-theme and inter-related papers, chosen and reviewed by specialist readers from the University of Oxford’s Late Antique and Byzantine Studies department. Any speakers wishing to have their papers considered for publication should try to be as on-theme as possible in their abstract and paper. Nevertheless, all submissions are warmly invited.

More details will be sent to successful submissions soon after the deadline. Subject to funding, the OUBS hopes to offer subsidised accommodation for visiting speakers.

Please find a pdf of the call for papers here.

Out-of-Print Books for Scholars

It is with great pleasure that I am attaching to this email a copy of latest catalogue – CATALOGUE FORTY-THREE – which contains books in three fields of study: the ancient Old World; mediaeval, Renaissance and Reformation Europe; and the Middle East from the end of the ancient world to present times.

Unless you have specifically requested that only certain sections of the catalogue be sent to you, I am attaching the catalogue in its entirety. This will save further damaging my fingers, since there are several thousand emails to send and it is easier to send only one attachment. If you wish to receive only a specific section of the catalogue, please email so that I can so annotate your entry in my database.

Please use email to order from this catalogue.  In the past, my cellphone reception here has very poor and very frustrating.  A new cell tower has finally been constructed.  But it is far enough away that I am not yet sure that reception will be the norm at all times.

Please share my catalogue with your friends, colleagues and students. Thank you.

Enjoy the catalogue!

Sincerely,

    Junior Research Fellowship, the American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC)

    The American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC) announces the availability of US graduate student, postdoctoral and junior scholar fellowships in support of research and mentoring activities in the South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia).  The goals of the fellowship are 1) to support research in and the study of the South Caucasus; 2) to select, recognize and financially support individuals early in their careers who demonstrate high potential to contribute to research in this region; 3) to support a mentoring relationship that will both develop the academic skills of the mentee and strengthen ties between the US and host country. Projects in all fields in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are eligible, but all projects must include one or more undergraduate and/or graduate students from Armenia, Azerbaijan, and/or Georgia as research assistants/participants.  Research awards will be made for a maximum of $5000 each to help cover travel, living, and research expenses in the South Caucasus; an additional $500 may be made available for fellows to offset necessary expenses related to incorporating an undergraduate or graduate student in the host country in their research program.  For ARISC grant purposes, mentoring is understood to involve integrating a local scholar into a research project in a fundamental way that involves cultivating skills and knowledge of methods that will contribute to the professional development of the local scholar. Proposals will be judged on their quality and on the potential of the research to strengthen scholarship on the South Caucasus.

Application requirements: Please send a complete application including the application form, a project statement of not more than 1500 words, work schedule, budget, and curriculum vitae, by Tuesday, December 23, 2014, to info “at” arisc.org.
