Cultural Encounters in the Ancient Mediterranean
Although many of us are trained to look at the ancient world from one cultural (or academic) perspective, we are all aware that the ancient world was both culturally diverse and interconnected. This meeting takes as its starting point the impact of encounters between cultures, groups and individuals. It seeks to understand how we should define “cultural encounters” and explore what kind of models we should use to approach these encounters.
Keynote speaker: professor Martin Goodman (Oxford University). Professor Goodman is a leading expert on ancient Judaism in its Graeco-Roman context.
