Preparatory Workshop


This preparatory workshop was held as an informal gathering, meant to explore the possibility of a joint application on the subject of social exclusion in late antique polemics, including the possibility of later manipulation of sources. It was given the provisional title:

“The Lives and Afterlives of Texts and Images in Late Antiquity: Strategies of Manipulation and Social Exclusion in Polemical Contexts”

and was held at the Castle of Oud Poelgeest, Oegstgeest (The Netherlands), on 12-14 December, 2014.

Convenor: Hagit Amirav, VU University Amsterdam
