Alexander the Great and Egypt: History, Art, Tradition

University of Wroclaw, Poland

This is a workshop organized by Krzysztof Nawotka (University 
of Wroclaw, Poland), Volker Grieb (Helmut Schmidt University 
Hamburg, Germany) with Agnieszka Wojciechowska (University

aim of this workshop is to examine both the Macedonian conquest 
of Egypt, its consequences and its reflection in literature and art. An 
area of particular importance is attitudes of the local population to
Alexander. The organizing committee looks forward in particular 
to contributions making use of both classical and Egyptian sources 
and to those uniting multidisciplinary approach to the sources 
material and research questions.

We invite papers suitable for delivery in 20-30 minutes. Please 
send abstracts of 300 words or less as an attachment to Agnieszka 
Wojciechowska (agnieszka.w4@gmail.com) by 30 May 2011.
