Late Antique Provocation Colloquium
Friday 1 December, 2023
The Rome Transformed team welcome registrations for our upcoming online colloquium which explores the form of key buildings and complexes in the Eastern Caelian, Rome during the Late Antique Period. Discussion will focus on critiques of our work-in-progress in generating visualisations (‘provocations’) of each case study. Detailed supporting material will be made available to respondents via Rome Transformed’s RT SCEIDOC system https://rometrans.ncl.ac.uk/rtsciedoc/ but the rationale and supporting evidence for each provocation will be presented during the colloquium, prior to each discussion.
