"Being Peloponnesian" Int'l Conference

The University of Nottingham's newly founded Centre for Spartan and
Peloponnesian Studies


is organising an international conference entitled "Being
Peloponnesian: Cohesion and Diversity through Time," from March 31 to
April 1.


The conference will examine the developments of Prehistoric,
Classical, Roman, Byzantine and modern times that promoted or
obstructed the cultural and economic integration of the Peloponnese
along with its inhabitants' sense of a shared identity. Through papers
focused on all or most of the region, the conference will explore the
way in which a sense of the Peloponnese developed, was transmitted,
and fluctuated through time.
