July 4-14

The Colloquium is a ten-day program for scholars of New Testament and Christian origins
interested in engaging with archaeology and material culture in their research and teaching. The
program will feature presentations by scholars in the field; presentations on research projects by
seminar participants; and site visits.

The itinerary begins with four days in Rome and a day trip to Ostia. The Colloquium then travels south for five days at Pompeii, Naples, and Herculaneum. Sessions will provide overviews of specific methods or materials, such as epigraphy, field techniques, small finds, and recent
theory in archaeology; and discussions of specific topics of interest, such as domestic space, public religion, socioeconomic status, civic identity, and the incorporation of archaeology and material evidence in research and teaching.

Participants are responsible for their own travel, meals, lodging, and incidental expenses, as well
as a registration fee of $1000. The registration includes: seminar presentations, honoraria for
site specialists, museum entries, some local transportation, opening and closing banquets.
Information about lodging is available online (URL below).

Participation is open to faculty with continuing
appointments at any rank in the field of New
Testament, early Christianity, and related fields.
Applicants should provide contact information, a brief
CV, and describe a specific project that will benefit from participation in the program (one page). We expect to select twelve scholars to participate in the seminar. Review of applications will begin January 7.

Conveners of this Colloquium are Steven Friesen (UT-Austin), Daniel Schowalter (Carthage
College), Christine Thomas (UC-Santa Barbara), and James Walters (Boston University). Site
specialists will include Joseph Alchermes (Connecticut College); John Clarke (UT-Austin); Nicola
Denzey (Brown); Karl Galinsky (UT-Austin); Rabun Taylor (UT-Austin); and L. Michael White
