International Network:

International Network: "Interner Krieg: Gesellschaft, soziale Ordnung und politischer Konflikt in der Antike"

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has granted three-year funding for an international network in the field of classics / ancient history (01/04/2018 → 31/03/2021).

Last modified: 04.01.2018

The aim of the project is threefold: (a) The network intends to further our historical understanding of civil war as a crucial factor of sociocultural developments in the ancient world by developing new conceptual approaches to the phenomenon in question; (b) to advance a methodologically sound and comprehensive reexamination of the relevant source material; (c) and to lay the groundwork for future research by strengthening the cultural studies perspective on civil war. The network has strong potential for follow-up projects and provides a valuable point of departure for academic exchange beyond the disciplinary boundaries of classical studies.

The Network is a joint venture between the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Aalborg University and the University of Konstanz.
