18th Annual Postgraduate Colloquium
3rd June 2017
Multiculturalism from Late Antiquity to Modernity
Papers are invited for the 18th Annual Postgraduate Colloquium at the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and
Modern Greek Studies. Multiculturalism is a concept which is present in modern everyday life but also
extremely relevant to the past. Empires by their very nature are multicultural constructs and while a great deal
of scholarship looks at how minorities were treated or survived throughout history this colloquium is interested
in the places in which cultures interact. This colloquium will focus on cultural, social and religious interactions
in all spheres of life from armed conflict to diplomacy and cultural assimilation. Suggested topics include, but
are not limited to:

Multiculturalism - Diplomacy - Diaspora - Segregation
- Urbanism - Identity - Inclusiveness - Community
- Warfare - Trade - Insularity - Captive narratives

Papers of approximately 20 minutes related to any of the fields covered by Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern
Greek Studies are welcome. Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words no later than Monday 3rd
April 2017 to Applicants will be notified of selection within a week of this date.

Please note that a limited amount of discretionary funding may be available to assist overseas speakers to cover partial cost. This will be assigned on a first come first served basis. Please make your interest known upon submission of your abstract.
