Papers are invited for the International Conference on Cemetery Studies, held by the Master’s Programme “Education and Culture” at the Harokopio University of Athens, Greece, in collaboration with the Cemetery Research Group at the University of York, U.K.
The Conference, which will be held at the Harokopio University in Athens on 18-20 April 2024, intends to bring together a wide spread of academics presenting their latest research findings concerning various aspects of cemeteries (end of 18th century onwards) including history, art and culture, anthropology, geography, social studies and cemetery tourism. Postgraduates and doctoral students are especially welcome.
The Cemetery Research Group Cemeteries Colloquium at the University of York has taken place annually for over twenty years; Harokopio University of Athens hosted and organized the Association of Significant Cemeteries of Europe Conference in 2017. Both events have fostered a fully interdisciplinary framework for understanding cemeteries in the past and present. Harokopio University of Athens (www.hua.gr) is located close to many important cultural sites of interest such as the Acropolis Museum, the ancient Agora of classical Athens and the ancient cemetery of Kerameikos.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words and a short, 100-word CV (both in word format) should be sent to: email@example.com. The deadline for abstract submissions is 31 January 2024. The Conference fee is 30 euros (15 euros for doctoral students), including light lunch, refreshments and a guided tour in a historical cemetery of Athens.
Conference language: English.
An edited selection of papers from the conference will be published in electronic form (with ISBN).
