                        *Final Announcement*
                 SHIFTING FRONTIERS IN LATE ANTIQUITY
                   An Interdisciplinary Conference
                       The University of Kansas
                           Lawrence, Kansas
                          March 23-26, 1995
     In  many ways, Late Antiquity (which traditionally  extends  from
A.D. 260, the accession of the emperor Gallienus, until 640, the death
of  the  emperor Heraclius and the rise of Islam)  represents  several
kinds  of "new frontiers."  Late Antiquity itself is  a  chronological
frontier,  separating Antiquity from the Medieval, Byzantine, and  Is-
lamic  periods.   It saw new geographical frontiers,  which  separated
east from west, Mediterranean from inland European, and Christian from
Muslim.  One also can identify various kinds of metaphorical frontiers
involving  spiritual, religious, intellectual, psychological,  mental,
social, ethnic, gender, and cultural matters.
     Current research by scholars of Late Antiquity, the early  Middle
Ages, the early Byzantine Empire, and the early Islamic period is  ex-
panding  to include consideration of this multiplicity  of  frontiers.
Hitherto, such investigations have been carried out in a vacuum.  This
conference,  organized by Hagith S. Sivan of the University of  Kansas
and Ralph W. Mathisen of the University of South Carolina, will create
a first-ever venue for a comprehensive discussion of the frontiers  of
Late Antiquity.
