The Australian Association of Byzantine Studies (AABS) would like to formally announce a second call for papers for its XVth Biennial Conference, honouring Elizabeth and Michael Jeffreys. This meeting’s theme will be "Imperium and Culture," looking at the relationship between imperial patronage and involvement in various aspects of cultural expression. Contributors are invited to interpret this theme broadly, and we welcome submissions from all fields. Both scholars with academic affiliation and working independently, as well as postgraduate students, are encouraged to apply.
The XVth Biennial Conference will be held 8-10 February 2008 at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Please submit paper abstracts of up to 500 words in length by no later than 15 October 2007.
