Multiculturalism from Late Antiquity to Modernity: 18th Postgraduate Colloquium (Centre Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies, Birmingham, England: 3 June 2017)

Deadline: 3 Apr 2017

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
* Captivity 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 250 words max. for consideration. 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.
