AEGEAN KOINE
A DIACHRONIC APPROACH TO THE AEGEAN WORLD AND ITS CULTURES: 3000 BC -
AD
2000
22-23 April 2005, University of Oxford

DEADLINE FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS: 15th FEBRUARY 2005

The OU Greek Society, with the support of the University of Oxford, the
University of Athens and the University of the Aegean (Lesvos), is
organising
a graduate-student workshop about the Aegean Koine : The Aegean and its
cultures through the centuries. Contributors from other Greek and UK
universities are also welcome. The workshop will take place in Oxford
on
the
22nd and 23rd April 2005 and is planned to be the first in a series of
research-exchange meetings.

Short papers (c. 20 minutes) will be presented about different aspects
of the
Aegean history, archaeology, ethnology and literature from Prehistoric
times
to the 20th c. AD.

Keynote speakers of the workshop will be Professor Angelos Chaniotis
(University of Heidelberg) and Professor Elizabeth Zachariadou
(University of
Crete).



The participants will be asked to speak about their research, so that
they
contribute to an inter-disciplinary discussion concerning different
levels of
interaction among Aegean societies (of the coastal areas and the
islands) and
their links with other areas of the Mediterranean world (Anatolia,
Middle
East, N. Africa, the West) in different periods. Among the crucial
questions of the workshop will be the extent to which we can speak of a cultural
Aegean
koine. Other topics will involve the impact of a central power over the
large geographical area, the study of trade links vis-a-vis the movement of
ideas,
the long-term interaction between island, coastal territories and
inland areas, the cohabitation among different cultural groups, population
movements,
local dialects, literature and more.

The central aim of this workshop is to encourage the exchange of
knowledge and
the transfer of research experience for a variety of disciplines among
graduate students on the basis of annual meetings alternating between
Oxford
and Greece, which could eventually lead to future research cooperation
between
the universities. UK-based students will have the opportunity to become
familiar with parallel research projects organised by Greek
universities
and
foster links with Greek scholars.

Participants are requested to send an abstract of their work in
English
(c. 1000 words) to the scientific committee (consisting of a mixed
group
of
graduate students and Oxford fellows) by 15th February 2005. English
will be
the official language. All papers will be published online and in
print,
and
will be accompanied by short abstracts in both English and Greek. A
number of
travel grants will be available for the participants.

The OU Greek Society will be responsible for organising the first
meeting of
the Oxford/ Athens/ Aegean partnership. The second meeting of the
workshop is
planned to take place in Greece in 2006, organised by the Societies of
Graduate students and the Faculties of the Athens and the Aegean
university.
