Impact of Empire 14, Roman Landscapes, 12-15 June, Call for Papers

May 9, 2018 in Conference

The fourteenth workshop of the network Impact of Empire will take place in Mainz (Germany), June 12-15, 2019, with as its subject: The impact of Empire on Roman landscapes.
Committee: Marietta Horster, Olivier Hekster & Alexandra Busch
The subject on „Roman Landscapes“ addresses the world outside the cities and focuses upon how space becomes “Roman”: The impact of Rome on the shaping and structuring of space, the symbolic,  literary, political and legal creation of a Roman landscape, changes in the cultivation of land related to the Roman dominance.
Topics:
Many subjects can be favourably explored, but to ensure coherence we will limit our choice of proposals to the following topics:
1. Mapping the Roman World: concepts and practices (traditional region or ethne/kingdom and province: space, natural and political borders; …)
3. Narratives of Roman landscapes (e.g. Georgica; Greek novel; Pompeian wall painting; artificial landscapes in villas; otium)
4. Rituals of integrating landscape into the Roman World (e.g. cult rituals and processions, centuriation, colony foundation)
5. Symbols marking a landscape as Roman (e.g. milestones; Roman villae; monumental cenotaphs and festivals; streets and aqueducts; military camps and canabae)
6. Appropriation by exploitation of land and natural resources (e.g. mining, drainage of marsh-land; artificial harbours; terracing; military food supply; diversification and intensification of agriculture)
Proposals:
We invite both established and early career scholars interested in presenting a paper or a poster to send the provisional title, a short summary (c. 100-150 words) of their paper or poster and brief biographical note to roman.landscape@uni-mainz.de .
 
About 20 participants of the workshop will read a paper; c. 5 participants will present a poster. Speaking time: 25 minutes. Only papers which directly address the issues raised in this call for paper can be considered for selection.
Deadline for the submission of proposals for paper / poster: 30 August, 2018. 
 
Publication:
Papers, if of sufficient quality, will be published in the proceedings of the workshop, by Brill, Leiden – Boston.
Participants are expected to cover their travel expenses, though there may be a few stipends for especially junior scholars who cannot get reimbursement from their home institutions. The organizers are going to offer accommodation and lunches to the speakers and some meals.
