CFP “Sepolture di prestigio nel bacino mediterraneo (IV-IX sec.): definizione, immagini utilizzo"
Conference at Pella (Novara, Italy), June 28th -30th, 2017
Hosted by the Dipartimento di Studi Storici – Università degli Studi di Torino, the Conference Sepolture di prestigio nel bacino mediterraneo (IV-IX sec.): definizione, immagini utilizzo will be held at Pella (Novara, Italy) on June 28th – 30th , 2017. The Conference aims to bring together a range of experts in the fields of archaeology, history, epigraphy, and anthropology for the establishment of new methods and theoretical perspectives in the study of death and burial in late antique and early medieval society in the Mediterranean and neighbouring regions between the 4th and the 9th centuries. In particular, the discussion will focus on the concept of “privilege” and the means of self-representation in the funerary sphere. Scholars from all over Europe have already confirmed their participation. The Scientific Committee is now inviting submission of abstracts for posters! Posters are invited on current issues and research in the funerary archaeology of Late Antiquity and the early Middle Ages, including excavation of cemeteries and single tombs, monumental and topographical features of cemeteries, artifacts, epigraphy, funerary iconography, analysis of human remains. Two poster sessions will be held during the conference (June 28 and 29, afternoon) where the authors will be present to discuss and answer questions regarding their research presented on their posters. Extended versions of the selected posters will be included in the publication of the conference proceedings, scheduled for late 2018.
All abstracts and posters can be submitted in Italian, English, French, German, Spanish (250 words max). The authors of the chosen proposals will be responsible for printing and bringing the poster to the conference. Unfortunately, the budget restrictions do not allow the conference's organization to cover the authors' travel and meal expenses. Nevertheless, we will be happy to pick them up at the Novara train station or at Milano-Malpensa international airport and to help them find suitable accommodation in Pella or in the neighbouring villages. Authors traveling by car will find free parking at the conference's headquarters. Participation is free.
Those interested should complete and send the attached form and to sepoltureprivilegiate2017@gmail.com by February 15th, 2017. The authors of the chosen proposals will be contacted via email before the end of April.

CFP: Sepolture di prestigio nel bacino mediterraneo (IV-IX sec.): definizione, immagini utilizzo” 28 -30 giugno 2017 a Pella (Novara)
Su richiesta degli organizzatori, pubblico il "call for posters" del convegno “Sepolture di prestigio nel bacino mediterraneo (IV-IX sec.): definizione, immagini utilizzo”, che si terrà tra il 28 e il 30 giugno del 2017 a Pella (Novara). Il convegno si propone di affrontare il tema delle strategie di autorappresentazione nella sfera funeraria tra tarda Antichità e alto Medioevo. L’iniziativa, cui hanno aderito studiosi provenienti da Danimarca, Francia, Grecia, Gran Bretagna, Italia, Olanda, Serbia e Svizzera, ospiterà anche due sessioni posters sull’“archeologia della morte”, aperte a chiunque intenda affrontare temi quali lo scavo di necropoli e di singole tombe, gli aspetti monumentali e topografici dei cimiteri, l’analisi dei corredi funerari (dunque anche della ceramica!), l’epigrafia, lo studio dei resti umani.
