Еще один анонс: на сей раз о конференции в Сербии:
Within the framework of celebrating the Festivities of Saint Czar Constantine and Czarina Helena, the City of Niš organizes the Eight Symposium "NIŠ AND BYZANTIUM - VIII", which shall be held from 3rd to 5th June 2009 in the Main Auditorium of the University of Niš. The Symposium shall gather renowned researchers of our past on the Day of Saints Czar Constantine and Czarina Helena, with the purpose of informing the European scholarly public about the significance of Niš for the entire Christian world.
The intention of the Symposium organizers is to contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the Early-Christian, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine past of Niš, as well as of its reverberations to the later spiritual, cultural and artistic creative endeavors in Niš and its surrounding area, the Balkans and Europe. This would imply the interdisciplinary approach and the participation of art historians, historians, architects, archaeologists, classical philologists, literature-historians, theologians, philosophers... (http://www.nis.org.yu/byzantium/).
The presented papers shall be published in the Proceedings of the Symposium that shall be promoted on the first day of the next meeting in 2010. The participants have to furnish the organizers with their respective papers together with complete scientific references by November 2009.
