Conference: The Citizen in Late Antiquity

Utrecht University, Netherlands, 25 November 2019

On behalf of the Postgraduate and Early Career Late Antiquity Network and the NWO VICI project Citizenship Discourses in the Early Middle Ages we cordially invite you to our upcoming Postgraduate and Early Career Conference: ‘The Citizen in Late Antiquity’.

This workshop aims at providing an informal, constructive environment for post-graduate and early career researchers to present their work, meet others working in the field, and discuss current trends and issues. The Late Antiquity Network provides a single platform for those working on a broad range of geographical and disciplinary areas within the period of Late Antiquity, and participants are thus encouraged to interpret ‘citizen’ in a broad sense, thinking about how the theme intersects with their own research. Facilitating this will be an address by our visiting speaker, Professor Engin Isin of Queen Mary University London, to which Professor Els Rose will provide a response.

The event will take place from 09:30-17:00 and the venue will be Kanunnikenzaal, Faculty Club (Achter de Dom 7). Attached you may find the conference program, abstract overview and poster. For further information and updates, please visit our website.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is required. Please register by contacting: K.Boers@uu.nl
