We are proud to announce the first lustrum edition of our Annual Meeting on Friday February 12th. The programme for the conference can be found on our Annual Meeting page, and you are cordially invited to register for attendance (before February 4th).

The CRASIS Annual Meeting & Masterclass is a two-day event, set up as an informal meeting place for students at PhD or Research Master level, postdocs and senior staff to promote the discussion and exchange of ideas beyond disciplinary boundaries. A keynote speaker is invited to give a masterclass for (Research) MA and PhD students on the first day of the meeting, and to hold the CRASIS Keynote Lecture at the conference for advanced researchers on the second day. The conference on the 12th is open to the public, the Master Class is only for invited participants.

The theme of the 2016 Annual Meeting is, Hellenism: Interaction, Translation and Culture Transfer. We are glad to welcome Dr. Benjamin Wright (Lehigh University, PA) as this year’s Master and Keynote speaker. At the end of the Annual Meeting, he will give the following lecture:

“Greek Paideia and the Jewish Community of Alexandria in the Letter of Aristeas”

The conference is dedicated to the exploration of the complex cultural concepts involved in our current understanding of Hellenism. For practical information such as programme, and registration, as well as a topic statement, please consult the Annual Meeting page .
