Our 3rd Student Annual Conference will take place at the CYA Academic Centre in Athens on May 2 and 3, 2019.
"The Iconography of Power: Art, Politics, Propaganda & Religion in the Mediterranean across Time"
Throughout human history, the role of images has been fundamental to the shaping of political ideologies, communal identities, religious beliefs and military supremacy. Images are carriers of certain messages that appear to be repeated or reshaped by different societies. The aim of this conference is to explore these issues both through time and through different methodological approaches which can be applied across the Mediterranean region from prehistory until the present. In doing so, the conference also aims to comment on the influential role that pictorial art plays in characterizing certain societies.CONFERENCE COMMITTEE:
