Seminar on Terms


As part of the “Working Package 1. Methodological Debate” the team of “Measuring Ancient Thrace” project organized a seminar on terms, used in the Thracian studies. Its purpose is to initiate the discussion on the standardization of used terms and concepts in the study of Thracian (and not only) antiquity. On the one hand, some terms that have been widely used are not always appropriate. On the other hand, the adoption of many new terms from foreign literature, especially with the widespread introduction of digital technologies, necessitates the launch of such a discussion. Lecturers in the meetings are team members and young scholars with a personal invitation. The moderator of the discussions is Prof. Dr. Dr.Sc. Dilyana Boteva.
