Travel has played a fundamental role in shaping history. As ancient peoples moved from one place to another, they left behind material remains, and in a few rare cases, literary accounts of their journeys. Today, scholars of the ancient world follow in their footsteps, visiting ancient sites, museums, and libraries across the world. This conference will bring together graduate students and faculty from a variety of disciplines in order to explore different approaches to travel in the ancient world, as broadly defined. The keynote address will be given by Dr. Annette Juliano of Rutgers University.
