The timings will accommodate live viewers in as many time-zones as possible. We aim to provide simultaneous translation into Mandarin Chinese.

Workshop: Beazley for the 21st Century
We are delighted to give advance notice of our next CARC 'annual' workshop, kindly supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels: Beazley for the 21st Century. This two-day event was originally planned for our 50th anniversary year, 2020, but keen to hold it as an in-person discussion, as far as possible, after consulting colleagues we have decided to postpone it till 2022. We will confirm dates as soon as we are permitted to plan details.
Bringing together an international line-up of experts, the workshop will reconsider the extraordinary legacy of Sir John Beazley's connoisseurial work on ancient Athenian vases. It will look afresh at the potential value of his research and method for the scholarship of the next fifty years, not just in the study of ceramics or Greek art history, but also for the broader history and archaeology of the Greek world. What does the combination of breadth and granularity in the Beazleyan view of Greek painted pottery offer for understanding ancient culture and society, art, production and trade?
