Byzantium the Slavs
Call for Contributions
Deadline: 31st December 2017
The Slavs, whose presence on the territory of Europe has been recorded starting from the first centuries of our era, profoundly interacted with Byzantium, determining its political choices and shaping its identity: first, the encounter-clash between these two different worlds, which the court of Constantinople had repeatedly attempted through diplomacy or weapons, and hence the progressive formation of the Slavic states in the Balkan Peninsula is undoubtedly among the indispensable factors in the examination of the modern Byzantine scholar. And this is all the more true when thinking about the developments of the historical and social dynamics inherent in Slavic populations that continue to be reflected in the modern world.
In the light of these considerations and in the perspective of dedicating the next issue of Porphyra (XXVII) to the relationship between Byzantium and the Slavs, we invite interested professors, doctoral students, research doctors, young researchers and scholars to send their contributions to email@example.com before and no later than 31 December 2017.
Papers may be submitted in English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, and Modern Greek. Contributions must be complete upon submission – a proposal is no longer sufficient for a contribution. Editorial rules must be followed precisely; otherwise the contribution will be rejected. To be accepted the article in full must comply with general scientific standards of research and publication, and be formatted according to Porphyra editorial rules (found on the website). Every article must be accompanied with a short English abstract (250-300 words max) and 10-15 keywords. It is also possible to submit monograph reviews (1500 words max).
Proposal and reviews must be sent to : firstname.lastname@example.org
