Call for papers

This is a call for papers for the second issue of Heródoto - Revista do Grupo de Estudos sobre a Antiguidade Clássica e suas Conexões Afro-asiáticas ("Herodotus: Journal of the Study Group on Classical Antiquity and its Afro-Asian Connections"). The group originated from the research interests of scholars of the classical world who investigate its connections with the African and Asian worlds known in antiquity. Aiming to contribute to the work already done in this field, there are two research goals developed by the group:

1) To point out the mutual and non- hierarchized influences between Greco-Roman and Afro-Asian cultures - considering, besides the relations of acceptance and dominance, instances like assimilation, adjustment, conflict, negotiation and resistance in the face of contacts.

2) To indicate the influences exerted by the theories of Eurocentrism, Afrocentrism and Asiancentrism in the historical production about the ancient world. For its second issue, the journal will receive articles for the dossier Textos, artefatos e o debate sobre a pluralidade no Mediterrâneo Antigo (Texts, artifacts and the debate on the plurality in the Ancient Mediterranean), which will address issues related to contacts and identities, relations between the local and the global and cultural circularity. In addition to articles, the issue will accept contributions to the Varia section, translations, reviews, documents whose contents are related to the areas of research interest of the group and interviews of scholars.

Contributions must be submitted online at Open Journal Systems, at the address  until october 30, 2016.
