Australian Association for Byzantine Studies 19th Conference, 24-26 February
2017, Monash University, Melbourne http://www.aabs.org.au/conferences/dreams-memory-and-imagination-in-byzantium/ In the last two decades, the role of dreams, memory and the imagination in
the ancient world and its cultural productions have come to receive
increased attention, along with the importance of emotions in the
Greco-Roman and medieval worlds. This conference will focus on the ways that
the Byzantine imagination shaped its dreams and memories from the fourth to
fifteenth centuries and the many ways in which these were recorded in the
Byzantine world, in its historiography, literature, religion, art and
architecture. Professor Derek Krueger of Greensboro University, North Carolina, will be
our guest speaker at this international conference. We welcome papers on any aspect of the topic, including reception studies.
The deadline for the first call for papers is 31st July 2016. Two student
bursaries will be offered to HDR students who present papers. Further information will be available on the web site or from the Convenor,
Dr Eva Anagnostou-Laoutides, at eva.anagnostoulaoutides@monash.edu, or for
general enquiries conference@aabs.org.au. Andrew Stephenson
