Change and Resilience: The Occupation of Mediterranean Islands in Late Antiquity

Friday, December 1st, 2017-Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

This conference will explore the transformation of Mediterranean islands with a primary focus on settlement patterns and the transformation of landscapes and mindscapes. The idea is to explore how the models of occupation of the islands changed from the Roman to the Medieval Period focusing in change and resilience, in innovation and tradition, in the creation of new settlements and the reoccupation of prehistoric sites. Synthesis on particular large islands or archipelagos will be prioritized as oral presentations by invitation only. Our overarching goal for these workshop is to foster the exchange of ideas between a small number of scholars. Papers delivered are short (20 minutes), and are intended to open up discussion of the state of the field concerning the occupation of Mediterranean islands between the Roman and the Medieval period. We also wish to emphasize the need for discussion of potential cooperative ventures, and of how things might progress in the coming years in the study of Mediterranean island systems in Late Antiquity.

Free and open to the public. No registration required. More information online at www.brown.edu/go/changeandresilience.
