This year’s Colloquium on Material Culture and Ancient Religion (COMCAR) will focus on sites in the north Aegean region, with consideration also of broader temporal and cultural contexts. The theme for 2013 is, “Navigating Roman Macedonia: Intersections of Empires Along the North Aegean.” The colloquium begins July 12 and concludes July 23. An optional add-on to Istanbul is under consideration (July 23-26).
Participants and organizers will visit sites with resource specialists and will discuss research projects. The colloquium is open to faculty with continuing appointments and to advanced doctoral students with teaching appointments.
