Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the CFP for the fourth edition of the Sienese seminars ''Classicamente. Dialoghi senesi sul mondo antico''.

The young scholars and doctoral students of the curriculum in ''Anthropology of the ancient world'' of the doctorate in ''Sciences of Antiquity and Archeology'' promote the initiative ''Classicamente. Sienese dialogues on the ancient world.'' In the belief that it is necessary to promote the encounter and comparison between antiquists of different backgrounds and interests, offering them the opportunity to present the fruit of their research activities, “Classically. Sienese dialogues on the ancient world'' is configured as a cycle of seminars in which young scholars of the ancient world, under the age of 35 and who do not belong to any academic institution in a stable manner, expose the results of their research, in the desire to test the ground on the current lines of research in relation to the proposed topics.

WHERE: Online, possibly later in the year in Siena, Italy.
WHEN: The dates of the seminars will be decided one by one together with the speakers themselves. The seminars will be held from March to November 2021.

Call for Papers:

The present CFP is addressed to young scholars: postgraduate graduates, doctoral students, research fellows and independent scholars. The project aims to engage young researchers by sharing and discussing their different approaches to the classical world (anthropological, philological, historical, archaeological, semiotic, linguistic etc.) and their research results.

We will welcome papers concerned both with theoretical problems and their concrete outcome concerning topics and case studies of anthropological interest such as:
- identity and otherness (the stranger, creation of identity, the monstrum etc.)
- kinship
- myth in its literary and folkloric expressions
- cult, its practices, its tolerance and religious conflict
- elements of sociolinguistics and their synchronic and diachronic evolution
- the “sign” in its linguistic, religious and iconographical variations
- material culture (agriculture, craftsmanship and commerce) and economy
- law, juridical institutions and the pre-juridical aspects of a specific society
- philosophical currents and history of ideas
- the different means of transmission of knowledge (oral, aural, written) and of memory (individual
or social)
- perspectives brought to anthropology of the ancient world by archeology and epigraphy
- representations of space and time.

Candidates are invited to send an abstract of 500 words max. + a short bibliography via the dedicated form
