Conference on Ancient Arcadia

About all I’ve had to do this semester with Corinthian Matters is post a series of conference proposals. Here’s one related to a conference on ancient Arcadia:

February 11th‒12th, 2016

International Symposion

Arkadien im Altertum – Geschichte und Kultur einer antiken Gebirgslandschaft

Ancient Arcadia ‒ History and Culture of a Mountainous Region

After five years of archaeological research conducted by the University of Graz and the EFA Korinthias in a joint project at Archaia Pheneos, the University of Graz (Center of Antiquity, Institute of Archaeology, Institute of Ancient History) will hold an international symposium dedicated to ancient Arcadia and its historical, demographical and cultural peculiarities.


At this symposium the following topics will be dealt with

· Arcadian poleis: historical and archaeological evidence

· Prehistoric Arcadia

· Arcadian art

· Cult and religion in ancient Arcadia

· The image of Arcadia in ancient texts and its later adoption

· Economy and traffic in the mountains of Arcadia

· Arcadia and its role in Greek history

· Roman Arcadia

· Language and written records of Arcadia
