Call for Papers - CRASIS: "Sensing, Making, Relating: Ontologies of the Divine"

25 October 2022

CRASIS invites applications for its twelfth Annual Meeting and Masterclass, which will take place on 20 (Masterclass) and 21 (Annual Meeting) February 2023 at the University of Groningen. The Annual Meeting and Masterclass is a two-day event, designed to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas about the ancient world across traditional disciplinary boundaries among graduate students, postdocs, and established scholars. This year, our theme will be ‘Sensing, Making, Relating: Ontologies of the Divine’, and we are honored to welcome Prof. Esther Eidinow (University of Bristol) as keynote speaker and master. We want to investigate how the ancients imagined their gods: what did a god look like? How did a god behave? We invite papers exploring past, present and potential ontologies of the divine in the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern world, from any perspective including linguistic, literary, historical, philosophical, material, art-historical, archaeological, or reception-based.

PhD and Research Master students submit a proposal of a topic (500 words) for the Master Class, explaining how their own research relates to the theme. All other researchers are invited to submit a title and abstract (250 words) for a lecture at the Annual Meeting. Proposals must be submitted no later than 1 December 2022 via
