Summer course: Geographical, Ethnic, Social and Cultural Frontiers in Late Antiquity

The Summer Intensive Course – Luminosus Limes: Geographical, Ethnic, Social and Cultural Frontiers in Late Antiquity to be held at Central European University, in Budapest, July 7-12, 2014 is calling for participants.


The “Bright Frontier” summer course explores the dynamic transformation of classical frontiers between the second and the sixth century from a multidisciplinary perspective: archaeology, medieval studies, social and cultural history, art, theology, and literature. Offering a groundbreaking approach to the field of border studies including social, gender, ethnic and religious categories with the participation of outstanding scholars in the field, this course will provide students with a solid knowledge of up-to-date international scholarship on frontiers: a strong theoretical background as well as hands-on acquaintance with physical borders and material artifacts excavated along the Danube River (the ripa Pannonica) as well as in the late antique cemetery of Pécs in Hungary.
