Dear colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to a workshop series entitled "Archäologische Grundbegriffe" (Archaeological Concepts), which takes place at the Institute for Classical Archaeology of FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany. In this series, we want to explore the question how to benefit from the messages of ancient objects and images under present conditions.

Our first workshop will focus on a seminal concept of modern European thinking: the concept of freedom, which played a notoriously radical role already in the formation of archaeological hermeneutics in the Age of Enlightenment. We are calling for critical contributions highlighting ancient objects and images concerning that very concept.

Further information can be found here: https://www.klassischearchaeologie.phil.fau.de/archaeologische-grundbegriffe/

The workshop will take place on 13 and 14 July 2023. Application is possible until 31 March, travel and accommodation costs for invited participants will be covered.

We look forward to inspiring paper proposals!
