Fourth E.T. Salmon/Roman Family Conference
McMaster University

SEPTEMBER 28-29, 2001

Roman Family IV: Italy and Beyond

This is a call for papers for the next Roman Family conference, to be held as the fourth E. Togo Salmon conference at McMaster University, September 28-29, 2001. The scholarship on the family which has emerged in the past twenty-five years has made it a central concern of Roman social and cultural history, and has changed significantly our understanding of the ancient world. Among the most seminal contributions have been the three volumes that emerged from conferences on the Roman Family organised by Beryl Rawson at the Australian National University. This fourth Roman Family conference seeks to continue the standard of quality and integrity established by those gatherings. We are seeking papers which address the following issues, preferably not with a narrow methodological focus, but utilising a synthetic approach, and adopting where appropriate epigraphic, literary, cross-cultural, and archaeological evidence: i) Most of the work which has appeared thus far has focused on Italy, and more particularly on Rome, leaving the provinces largely neglected. This conference, subtitled 'Italy and Beyond', seeks to present a set of regional studies on the Roman provinces, in which local evidence for family organisation and activity is examined, as far as is possible from the extant material. Greg Woolf (St. Andrews) and Jonathan Edmondson (York) will consider Gaul and Spain respectively, and other speakers are sought for other regions within the empire. ii) Further exploration will be made of the interior lives within the Roman familial context, the nature of parent/child relations, and the tenor of other affective relationships which are shaped by family structure and circumstance. Keith Bradley (Victoria) will speak on aspects of Roman childhood. Papers in this section should not be confined to the provinces, but adopt a thematic approach.

Abstracts of 300 words (maximum), with a single page CV, should be sent to:
