CFP for the POSTER SESSION Extended Deadline 31.3.2011
Roman Family VI
LIMITS AND BORDERS OF CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY
17-19 May 2012
Villa Lante al Gianicolo, Institutum Romanum Finlandiae, Rome
The conference sets out to continue the tradition of the previous
Roman Family Conferences, held in Canberra, Hamilton and Fribourg in
the period 1981-2007. In this conference, 'limits and borders' will be
understood in three different ways:
1) the borders of the Roman Empire which have so far not been in the
centre of the discussion
2) the limits of human life, by which we mean dangerous or 'darker'
sides of childhood and family
3) the borderline between childhood/youth and the adult world.
Moreover, we will also touch upon chronological borders, by focusing
on Late Antiquity, a period which has been intensively studied in the
last years and has become a new and flourishing branch of family
The poster session gives to scholars and PhD students an occasion to
be in contact with the best specialists of the topic in the world by
presenting their posters.
The poster should have a topic, the name(s) of the presenter(s) and
should elaborate on its topics through text and/or graphics such as
tables, drawings or charts. The poster size could be at maximum 100 X
80 cm, at minimum 30x40 cm (appr. A3 size paper). Please notice that
the font size should be larger than on normal print, as the text
should be able to be read from further off. Ideally, poster forms the
starting point for a brief and interactive presentation to interested
viewers; therefore, it is recommendable that handouts are provided by
The conference organizers will provide poster boards. Presenters are
responsible for bringing the poster with them (no printing services
can be offered) and for being present at the board during breaks and
