Rooted Cities Conference 2021

In the context of our project Connecting the Greeks and the Anchoring Innovation sub-project Anchoring Empire, we are organising a transdisciplinary conference focused on inter-urban connections through religion, to be held at the University of Groningen as a hybrid event on November 18-20.

The conference – Rooted Cities, Wandering Gods: Inter-Urban Religious Interaction – is intended to bring together scholars studying the urban societies of the ancient Mediterranean, concerned with the entanglement of religious beliefs, urban networks, and institutions of mobility and communication. The full programme, registration and more are available on the conference website:
