Art under the Seleukid Empire: New perspectives
CARC has confirmed the topic for this year's annual international workshop.
'Art under the Seleukid Empire: New Perspectives' will take place on 28-29 September 2023, with an in-person audience at Wolfson College Oxford and online via Zoom. An international line-up of speakers will lead a hybrid conversation about the character of art under the rule of the Hellenistic Seleukid dynasty, which extended at times from the Mediterranean to the Indus. We will think afresh about the character of Seleukid art, the extent to which it can be defined as an entity, and the new light cast by ongoing archaeological discoveries.
Book now for free through our eventbrite page. All in-person attendees will also be given a Zoom link, so there is no need to book twice if you want both modes of attendance.
The provisional programme is available for download here (note that last-minute changes may occur: check here for the latest version).
The workshop has been organized in collaboration with Dr Rachel Wood and with the kind support from Tony Michaels and Wolfson College Oxford.
