The DANUBIUS Project (ANR / I-SITE ULNE) will organise its second Summer School on the 9th-11th of June 2021, jointly with the EX-PATRIA Project, in association with the University of Lille, UMR 8164 – HALMA (Univ. Lille, CNRS, MC), the Maison européenne des Sciences de l’Homme et de la Société (MESHS), the Doctoral School SHS Lille Nord de France and the Hauts-de-France region. The event is primarily intended for doctoral students, but it is also open to Master students and to a wider audience. Its second edition will have the prosopography of Late Antiquity as its general theme.

This Summer School will offer various seminars led by the key authors of the Prosopographie chrétienne du Bas-Empire and by other scholars investigating Late Antique prosopographies. The speakers will share their experience, emphasizing questions of methodology. In addition, PhD students engaged in prosopographical projects will discuss their work. Participation in the three-day activities can be validated as part of a doctoral training – 7 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) – by the Doctoral School SHS Lille Nord de France. PhD students who are interested in such validation are kindly asked to inform the organisers in advance.
