The Age of Augustus

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 31 décembre 2013

 

 

International Conference
24-26 September 2014, Lisbon

Augustus died on August 19th 14 A.D. The year 2014, therefore, will mark the second millennium of the death of one of the most influential characters in History. To him we owe, for example, a considerable part of what we know today as Europe. His importance was such that even today historians designate his time as "The Age of Augustus", which is quite a good reason to commemorate that same year as the "Augustan Year".
The Centre for Classical Studies, the Centre for History and the Centre for Archaeology of the University of Lisbon, along with the Centre for Art History and Artistic Research of the University of Évora, the University of Madeira and the Università degli Studi di Bari 'Aldo Moro', with the support of the Portuguese Society of Classical Studies, organize an international conference to be held in September 24-26, 2014, in Lisbon, the ancient Olisipo, city of the Roman province of Lusitania.
