After many months of preparation, we have released the CFP for the AAH 2020 meeting in Iowa City, which will be held from April 23-25, 2020. The theme is “A Global Antiquity” and it is asking ancient historians to think beyond the traditional bounds of Greece and Rome in order to see a more global view of the ancient world. I have duplicated the CFP below for those interested, but do consider applying or attending. I have been a part of the AAH since I was a graduate student and holding the meeting here at the University of Iowa is perhaps my way of trying to open up our discipline in terms of scope, but also in terms of time. Historians of Late Antiquity, graduate students, public historians, archaeologists, digital humanists, art historians, and those who look at ancient history through religious studies are welcome to apply.
Due December 2, 2019 to the Online Submission Form.
