Return to Cliopatria
The Cliopatria Symposium is an irregular/monthly feature here at Cliopatria -– monthly to remind us to do it periodically and irregular so we won't necessarily do one just because the calendar says so. Manan Ahmed has agreed to keep the agenda for the symposia. We'll need worthy articles to discuss: If you come across an article that appears to be a likely candidate for attention here, please recommend it to him: manan*at*uchicago*dot*edu.
