Description
The Arts and Humanities Research Division (AHRD) of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) is organizing A Panel on Ancient Greek Law in the 21st Century, 3-6 January 2017, Athens, Greece as part of the 4th Annual International Conference on Humanities & Arts in a Global World sponsored by the Athens Journal of Humanities & Arts. The aim of the panel is to bring together academics and researchers whose work is related to Ancient Greek law. Interest in the study of ancient Greek law has been revived in recent years. Traditionally, research had been largely confined to the better attested legal system of the classical Athenian democracy. Yet, early (archaic) Greek law as well as the legal systems of other city-states have formed the focus of latest studies relating to politics, classics, legal history, social and cultural anthropology. This cross disciplinary approach to Greek law proves that its study need not be a sterile examination of the distant past. On the contrary, lessons can be extracted if research is linked with contemporary issues in a way that leads to an intellectual ferment for the improvement of our lives. Areas of interest include (but are not confined to): The rule of law in ancient Greece Equality before the law in ancient Greece Unity of ancient Greek law Relevance in Athenian courts Evidence in Athenian courts Study of the Attic orators The rhetoric of Athenian litigants Promoting the study of Greek law in the 21st century Teaching ancient Greek law in the 21st century Incorporating ancient Greek law in university curriculum Fee structure information is available on http://www.atiner.gr/fees. Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available here. Please submit an abstract (email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form by 12 September 2016 to: Dr. Vasileios Adamidis, Lecturer, Nottingham Trent University, UK. Please include: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Current Position, Institutional Affiliation, an email address and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Please use the abstract submitting form. Decisions will be reached within four weeks of your submission. If your submission is accepted, you will receive information on registration deadlines and paper submission requirements. Should you wish to participate in the Conference without presenting a paper, for example, to chair a session, to evaluate papers which are to be included in the conference proceedings or books, to contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor, University of Stirling, UK (gregory.papanikos@stir.ac.uk). The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established in 1995 as an independent academic association and its mission is to act as a forum, where academics and researchers – from all over the world – can meet in Athens in order to exchange ideas on their research and to discuss future developments in their disciplines. The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here). Academically, the Association is organized into seven Research Divisions and fourty Research Units. Each Research Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
