CfP für die Online-Konferenz “Poles in the Near East”

A call for papers is now open for the sixth edition of the archaeological conference “Poles in the Near East”. The event will be held online from June 8th to 10th 2022.

The conference started as a review of current Polish fieldwork and study work related to the region in question. As it moved online in 2021, it took on a more international character. Many foreign collaborators of Polish projects, as well as researchers working on similar issues, were able to participate. As most papers were presented in English, they reached a wide and international audience. The organizers hope to maintain this trend during the current edition.
A special panel on marbles is planned for this year’s conference: “Marble use, trade and distribution in the Eastern Mediterranean during Late Antiquity„. Its organizers invite all interested parties to send their applications in English (details below).  

The main goal of the panel is to determine the importance of marble use in the eastern parts of the Late Antique Mediterranean world (4th–7th century AD), with special focus on the Levant. In the ancient world “marble” was a much broader term denoting not only metamorphic but also sedimentary and magmatic rocks. This precious sculptural and building material did not occur naturally everywhere, so it had to be imported, sometimes even from very distant areas of the Mediterranean world. Several crucial questions are therefore connected to the use of marble in Late Antiquity. The most evident is why it was being imported? Then, what were the mechanisms of distribution, what was the character of orders (private or imperial), and what was the nature of the places of display (public, e.g., baths, or private, e.g., residential buildings). Eventually, one should ask about the impact of the large-scale building activity (churches) in the eastern Mediterranean in Late Antiquity on the import, or local production, of specific marble items such as liturgical equipment and architectural details. Although marble was one of the most expensive building materials in Antiquity, the issue of its use between the 4th and 7th century is still largely unrecognized. Filling this research gap is important for understanding the significance of this material and trading it in Late Antiquity. Geographical scope of the panel: – Levant, Asia Minor, Balkans, Egypt, Cyrenaica, and Cyprus. Themes of the panel: – new discoveries, – archaeometric provenance studies, – social dimension, – distribution of marble and marble artefacts. Papers from this panel will be published in 2023 as a special thematic fascicle of the journal “Polish Archaeology in the Mediterranean” vol. 32/1.
