Cambridge Late Antiquity Network Seminar

The Cambridge Late Antiquity Network Seminar has a great and diverse programme of speakers planned for this year, under the aegis of the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities. Our first seminar is 11 October, featuring Dr. Mark Whittow (Corpus Christi, Oxford) speaking on Byzantium and the Feudal Revolution. The rest of the program is detailed below. More details are at All our Michaelmas seminars will be held at the CRASSH building, 17 Mill Lane, at 2.30 alternate Tuesdays, and followed by tea, biscuits, and vigorous discussion. But in the new year, we have a big change upcoming: CRASSH will be moving buildings in the new year, and so will we! Seminars will then be held at 5pm in the new Alison Richard Building, on the Sidgwick Site. Everyone interested in Late Antique, Byzantine & Early Medieval Studies is, as always, most welcome to join us. Please pass on this message to any new members in your department in the next while who might be interested.
