Registration is now open for the international conference, “The Once and Future Kings: Roman Emperors and Western Political Culture from Antiquity to the Present”, which is being held from July 5-7, 2017, at the University of Queensland St Lucia Campus in Brisbane.

We are pleased to host Prof. Rhiannon Ash (Oxford), Prof. David Scourfield (Maynooth) and Dr Penelope Goodman (Leeds) as our keynote speakers. The conference will open on the evening of Wednesday, July 5, with a public lecture by Prof. Ash on “Emperors in Space”, followed by a full two-day programme featuring speakers from the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand. The conference dinner will be held on Thursday, July 6, at Saint Lucy Caffé e Cucina on the St Lucia Campus.

Delegates coming from outside Brisbane may be interested to know that the exhibition “Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum” will be on at the Queensland Museum in July. We have secured a limited number of tickets at a discount rate for an excursion on Saturday, July 8.
