Children in Antiquity: Perspectives and Experiences of Childhood in the Ancient Mediterranean

July 14-16, 2015

The conference “Children in Antiquity: Perspectives and Experiences of Childhood in the Ancient Mediterranean” will take place at the University of Sydney.

Ancient childhood studies comprise a developing and important field of scholarship, in which major advances are currently being made. This conference will constitute a major contribution to our understanding of the history and archaeology of children in the ancient Mediterranean by drawing together key international scholars working in the area. Papers will focus on three major geographical regions – Egypt, Greece, and Italy – and will present a diachronic perspective from the Bronze Age to Byzantium, thereby producing a fertile forum for the discussion of cross-cultural and multi-temporal approaches to the children of antiquity.

Conference organisers: Lesley Beaumont (USydney), Matt Dillon (UNE), Nicola Harrington (USydney).

Plenary speaker: Mark Golden

This event is free. Conference attendance is open to academics, students, Ancient History high school teachers, and interested members of the general public.
