TRAVAS – Theorizing Resilience and Vulnerability in Ancient Studies – 19/20.01.2021

International, interdisciplinary workshop held online TRAVAS_Programme

Due to the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic we are currently confronted on a daily basis with questions of vulnerability and resilience on a personal but also societal scale. But how have past societies dealt with challenges? Can concepts such as vulnerability and resilience be used to explore ways of coping in ancient studies? These and other in-depth questions will be discussed in the context of the interdisciplinary, international online workshop“Theorizing Resilience and Vulnerability in Ancient Studies“ TRAVAS which is organised by a cooperation of the following institutions:

  • University of Bern, Institute for Archaeological Sciences, Prehistory (Switzerland)

  • Johannes Gutenberg Universität Mainz (Germany), 40’000 Years of Human Challenges
  • Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau, Vorderasiatische Archäologie (Germany)
