The organising committee is delighted to announce that registration for the fourth Annual Meeting of CRASIS is now open! CRASIS is the interdisciplinary research institute for the study of the ancient world at the University of Groningen. The theme of this year’s Annual Meeting 2015 is: CRISIS! The identification, analysis, and commemoration of crises in the ancient world. We have invited scholars from various fields to share their insights on this with us.
