Тhе objective of this interdisciplinary conference on Classical Studies is to present new insights, and fresh perspectives, on the the crisis of the third century AD. Imperial Rome was in heavy turbulence between AD235 and AD284. Political unrest, illustrated by a lack of stability and continuity in the leadership, public health issues, monetary problems, military strife, and several other concerns almost brought the empire to its knees.
Presentations at the conference will focus either on one of these issues, or on a broader theme within the history and/or historiography of the crisis. Events and phenomena leading towards to crisis, as well measures taken by emperors after the crisis are equally welcome.
The conference is open to contributions from academics in fields as varied as classical studies, art history, architectural history, theology, religious studies, political history, philosophy, canon law, medical history, economic history, and linguistics. Approaches transcending disciplinary boundaries are particularly encouraged.
The final deadline for proposals is September 5th, 2014.
