New Perspectives on Personifications in Roman, Late Antique and Early Byzantine Art (200-800 AD)

The aim of this workshop is to explore the formal patterns, roles and meanings, continuities and innovations in the depictions of personifications of this period to better understand their functions, their relationship to one another and to other iconographic tools, as well as the changes that occur between the second and ninth centuries in the Mediterranean world.

We invite proposals for individual papers from the fields of classics, archaeology, art history, visual studies, numismatics, sigillography and related fields. Please submit an abstract of 300 words and a bio of 100 words by 15 September 2023. The participants are expected to deliver a 20-minute talk, followed by a Q&A session. The workshop will take place in-person at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and the Museum für Abgüsse Klassischer Bildwerke in Munich on Friday and Saturday, 26-27 January 2024 and will be held in English.
