  • Ends: 5:00 pm on Friday, April 5, 2024
The Archaeology Program and Department of Classical Studies at Boston University invite you to attend the Spring 2024 panel discussion on the topic of “The Archaeology of Identity in “Peripheries” of the Roman World: An Emerging Scholar Symposium.” This panel brings together emerging scholars and senior scholar discussants to discuss how archaeological methods can illuminate personal identity among “peripheral” communities of the Roman world. We position the concept of “periphery” in both the geographic sense (e.g., Roman Britain, Africa, and the Roman east) and the cultural sense, including communities systematically disadvantaged by Roman society (e.g., women, slaves, racialized populations).
