(Source: AISSCA) Call for Panels: Hagiography Workshops in Rome, 3d edition, 16–17 January 2019
Biblioteca Angelica, Piazza Sant’Agostino 8, Rome, 16–17 January 2019. Deadline for submissions: 30 September 2018

The third installment of the Hagiography Workshops will again be held at the Biblioteca Angelica in Rome over the 16th and 17th of January. We look to encourage both exchanges between scholars and the development of the main or more innovative fields of research and methodological developments in modern hagiographical studies, bearing in mind their diachronic and multi disciplinary characteristics.

A thematic session should be organized by a coordinator and will involve between three to five communications of twenty minutes each. The comité scientifique of the Workshops will nominate a respondent to the session. Papers may be delivered in English, French, Italian, or Spanish.

Each proposal should provide the following:
1. title and abstract of the session (which should not be more than 1000 characters excluding spaces);
2. contact details, academic qualifications and university attachment of the session co-ordinator;
3. contact and academic details for those delivering papers in the session;
4. titles and abstracts (of no more than five hundred characters excluding spaces) for each paper.
Proposals should be sent to by the deadline, which is 23:59 hrs, 30 September 2018.
The board of AISSCA will nominate a comité scientifique to evaluate proposals on the basis of their academic relevance, the originality and homogeneity of the theme, and their impact upon national and international historiographical debates. Proposals for individual papers are also welcomed by the comité scientifique who may, if relevant, add them to pre-existing panels or create new panels where possible, bearing in mind the requirements for a coherent session.
The list of accepted proposals will be communicated by 15 October 2018, and published on the AISSCA website (
