1. CALLS FOR PAPERS

On the  33rd volume  of the Deltion of  the Christian Archaeological Society (2012)

DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF DEMETRIOS KONSTANTIOS

Dear Colleagues,

As you already know by now, eminent Byzantinist Demetrios Konstantios,  Director of the Byzantine and Christian Museum and Secretary General of the Christian Archaeological Society, recently passed away, on the 13th of February 2010. The Board has decided to honour the deceased by dedicating the 33rd volume of the Deltion of the Christian Archaeological Society (2012) to his memory.

Greek and foreign archaeologists and historians of Byzantine Art are invited to send their contributions to this volume. According to the practice also followed in former dedicatory volumes, the papers should be no longer than 5.000 words and include no more than 8 photographs and drawings. Regarding the rest, the standard rules for publications in the Deltion should be applied. Contributions will be submitted for approval to two readers appointed by the Board.

The papers should be addressed to the secretariat of the Christian Archaeological Society, at the Byzantine and Christian Museum (22, Vas. Sophias Ave., 106 75 Athens). Submission deadline is the 11th of March 2011.

The British Archaeological Association will hold the second of the biennial International Romanesque conferences in Palermo on 16-18 April, 2012. The theme is Romanesque and the Eastern Mediterranean, and the aim is to examine points of contact between the Latin West and the Byzantine and Islamic worlds in the 11th and 12th centuries. This took many forms, from the widespread importation of artefacts – textiles, ceramics, ivories and metalwork mostly – to a specific desire to recruit eastern painters and mosaicists, or emulate eastern Mediterranean forms and buildings, particularly those in Jerusalem. Crusading themes are likely to be important – as are commercial and artistic contacts with the southern Mediterranean – and the conference welcomes papers on interactions between Islamic and Christian cultures in Spain and North Africa, as well as in the eastern Mediterranean. Proposals for papers of up to 30 minutes in length should be sent to the conference convenor, Rosa Bacile, on rosa.bacile@talk21.com though decisions on acceptance will not be made until early 2011.

The Conference will be held in the historic centre of Palermo from 16-18 April, with the opportunity to stay on for three days of visits to medieval buildings in and around Palermo from 19-21 April.
