We are delighted to unveil the preliminary programme for our next workshop, ‘Beazley for the 21st Century’, which will take place in hybrid form on 26th and 27th September 2022. 

The conference, which was originally planned for our 50th anniversary celebrations in 2020, is generously supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels. Our international panel of speakers will address the potential of John Beazley’s legacy and his method for the next fifty years of ancient world studies – not just ceramic research or even Greek art history, but the history and archaeology of the ancient Greek world broadly defined. At the heart of our discussion is the recognition that this academic inheritance embodies something almost unique in the history of ancient art: a conspectus of an entire craft tradition through three centuries at the level of the individual. The workshop therefore asks what the combination of breadth and fine granularity in the Beazleyan method offers for the understanding of ancient culture and society as much as for art, production, and trade.
