12th international congress on Medieval & Modern mediterranean ceramics (Atenas, Octubre 2018)



Athens (Greece), 21st-27 October 2018

The International Association for the Study of Medieval and
Modern period Mediterranean Ceramics (AIECM3) is an
international society which promotes and reinforces the
study of medieval and modern period pottery in the
Mediterranean. It was established in 1992 (as the AIECM2)
at the initiative of a group founding researchers
from different Mediterranean countries.

In 2012, on the occasion of the Silvès meeting, it was
decided to enlarge the organization’s research field to
include the study of ceramics of the modern era, and leading
to it being renamed the AIECM3. The society organizes
triennial plenary Congresses and occasional thematic
meetings, and ensures the regular publication of the Acts.
The aim of these conferences is to present the cutting edge
of research in every special field that is part of the
wider context of medieval and modern ceramics but also to
draw general conclusions from the study of the societies
that produced, exported, imported and ultimately consumed
these ceramics. For this reason, thematic axes are selected
to facilitate the inclusion of lectures in more general
thematic groups and the drawing of the final conclusions.
The next Congress will take place in Athens from October
21st to October 27, 2018.

The Congress is organized by the Department of Archaeology
and the History of Art of the National and Kapodistrian
University of Athens with the participation of the National

Research), the French School at Athens and the Centre for
