Public and Private in the Roman House and Society Conference, University of Helsinki, 18-20 April, 2013
the "Public and Private in the Roman House" project (romanhouse.org) is organizing its second major event this April in Helsinki, building on the success of a workshop at NYU last October. Keynote speakers include Andrew Wallace-Hadrill and Margareta Steinby. The aim of this conference is to take a fresh look at notions of public and private within the domus by exploring the public and private spheres of the Roman house from the first century BCE to the third century CE.
The programme and practical information can be found on our website, romanhouse.org. Registering for the conference in advance is not required, but helps us to gauge the number of people we can expect. You can register for the conference at
In addition, Dr. Nicolas Monteix from Université de Rouen will give a presentation on Tuesday, April 23rd at 6 pm at the Finnish Society of Classical Philology. The title of his presentation is “Pistrina. New insights on Pompeian bakeries (2008-2012)”. The location is auditorium III at the main building of University of Helsinki (Unioninkatu 34).
Hope to see you in Helsinki!
