Conference in honour of Prof. Emeritus Demetrios Michaelides

October 26-28, 2021

Convivium: An international conference in honour of Prof. Emeritus Demetrios Michaelides on the occasion of his 75th birthday Nicosia, 26-28 October 2021

Τhe Archaeological Research Unit and the Department of History and Archaeology of the University of Cyprus are organizing an international conference in honour of Professor Emeritus Demetrios Michaelides on the occasion of his 75th birthday on the 26th of October 2021.

The conference, and Festschrift that will follow, has the title Convivium, i.e. the Roman version of a symposium, a term, which in modern times has been used to describe a group of people who enjoy good food. The organizers deemed it appropriate as this is a gathering of colleagues and friends of Professor Michaelides, who will come together to pay tribute and celebrate his invaluable work in the fields of archaeology and cultural heritage not only of Cyprus, but of the wider Mediterranean basin. Convivium also hints at Demetrios Michaelides’ love of good company, good music, and good food, which he shares with many of the authors of the papers.

The papers presented in the conference and many more will be published in a Festschrift to celebrate Professor Michaelides’ long and distinguished career.

All the conference will be broadcast online via ZOOM. Registration is required at the following link: Meeting Registration – Zoom
