Collegium of Roman Law – January 2018

The Center for Studies and Research on Ancient Law CEDANT of the University of Pavia is committed to the encouragement of advanced education and research in the eld of Roman and Ancient law. Founded in 2002 thanks to the support of the Institute for Advanced Study of Pavia (IUSS), CEDANT became a Research Center within the Department of Law of the University of Pavia in 2015. It operates in partnership with Collegio Ghislieri. CEDANT avails itself of an international Scholarly Advisory Board and carries out its activities in collaboration with specialists who are selected as appropriate according to the theme under study, and with respect for the broadest participation of the scholarly community and for the wide range of di erent methodologies. For the academic year 2017-2018, CEDANT is organizing the fourteenth «Collegium of Roman Law», an intensive residential course of study. The «Collegium» brings together, for three weeks in January 2018 at Collegio Ghislieri of Pavia, professors from Italian and foreign universities and early career scholars interested in the proposed theme as auditors. The professors will conduct a series of seminars – in Italian and in English – characterized by strong educational unity and coherence, and which also represent an opportunity for scholarly exchange and discussion. Each participant is invited to contribute actively to the development and pursuit of the research undertaken. A second stage, which will last a week in the month of September 2018, allows the professors and the early career scholars to discuss and critique the research of the early career scholars. The aim is a joint publication in a volume to be published by Pavia University Press. The scholarly theme of the «Collegium» 2018 falls within the project “Redhis – Rediscovering the hidden structure. A new appreciation of juristic texts and patterns of thought in Late Antiquity” (ERC advanced grant 2013, P.I. Dario Mantovani, host University: University of Pavia).

About Lorenzo Calvelli

I am a tenured Lecturer in Ancient History at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. I was a Marie Curie graduate student at University College London and earned a PhD in «History and Archaeology of the Mediterranean countries» thanks to a cotutelle agreement between Ca’ Foscari and the Université Paris X. I was a post-doctoral fellow at the American Academy in Rome, at the Warburg Institute in London, at the Villa I Tatti in Florence (The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies), and at the Centro di Studi e Ricerche sui Diritti Antichi in Pavia. From September to December 2015, I was a visiting research scholar at Princeton University thanks to a fellowship offered by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies.
My research interests focus on classical and late-antique epigraphy, on architectural spolia and antiquarian collections in Venice and Rome, on early Christianity in the Adriatic region, and on the reception of antiquity. I am the author of numerous scholarly contributions on these topics, among which my book «Cipro e la memoria dell’antico fra Medioevo e Rinascimento» (Venice, 2009). I serve on the Editorial Board of the series «Mediterranean Nexus», published by Brepols. I am a member of AIEGL, BES, ASGLE, and Terra Italia Onlus, on whose Academic Board I sit after my three-year appointment as Secretary General (2013-2015).
