Five new bursaries to attend TRAC 2014 are being offered by Munich Graduate School for Ancient Studies ‘Distant Worlds’ to present in their poster session at the conference.
Posters are invited on the theme of Roman housing in Pompeii.
Posters should address the multi-faceted issues of the coexistence of otium and negotium, of public and private, and of inhabitants and visitors which marks the use and perception of Roman domestic space. Contributions addressing architecture and decoration, archaeological finds, and epigraphic or textual evidence are equally welcome. Topics may include – but are not limited to – communication within the house, the relationship between inside and outside, the incorporation of shops and workshops, informal and formal meeting places, and the construction of family as related to space.
Abstracts of 250 words to Polly.Lohmann@campus.lmu.de and Anna.Anguissola@lmu.de by 21st February.
