CFP: Law and the End of Empire

Projet Volterra II: Law and the End of Empire
Workshop on the afterlife of Roman law 2
Monday-Tuesday 15-16 September 2008
History Department
University College London

Projet Volterra II, an AHRC-funded project based in the History
Department of UCL, is examining the post-imperial afterlife of Roman
law (initially to the Carolingian period). Over the two days of 15 to
16 September 2008, we are hosting a small colloquium-cum-workshop,
organised loosely around the themes 'Authorities and Subjects' and
'Manuals and Jurisprudence'. For an introduction to the project and
its aims, see .

Confirmed speakers include Professors Santiago Castellanos, Michael
Crawford, Gero Dolezalek, Wolfgang Kaiser, Dario Mantovani, and Drs
Simon Corcoran, Magnus Ryan, and Benet Salway but we welcome offers
of other papers. Preference will be given to those related to our
themes but contributions outside the themes but still relating to the
survival/reception of Roman law in the early medieval period are also
most welcome.

The colloquium is supported by the AHRC and we will be able to
contribute towards speakers' travel and accommodation expenses.

Those interested in offering a paper should contact Dr Benet Salway
by Friday 1 August 2008.
