Call for Papers

The Greek Chair at the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, the Hellenic Institute of Byzantine and Post Byzantine Studies in Venice and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki are co-organizing the 1st International Conference under the title “The Greek World and India: History, Culture and Trade from the Hellenistic period to Modern Times (4th c. BCE – 18th c. CE)”, New Delhi, 12th-16th of December 2022.

The aim of the Conference is to bring to the forefront the most recent research on the interaction, communication and influences between the Greek World and India from the period when these were at their peak, following Alexander’s the Great quest into Asia, until Modern Times. It is a firm belief of the organisers that exploring past aspects of the 2000 years-long history of Indo-Hellenic contacts could open new ways of promoting and enhancing current relations between the two nations. Within this context, the Conference will aim at focusing particularly on the following areas of research, by means of distinct panels consisting of specialized scholars and researchers:

1.     History and Contacts
2.     Numismatics
3.     Art and Archaeology
4.     Science and Philosophy
5.     Commerce and Economy
6.     Geography
7.     Hellenistic Period in India – The Greek Kings of India
8.     Greeks in Indian Literature
9.     Indians in Greek Literature (Ancient, Byzantine and post-Byzantine).

The working language of the Conference is English. Interested Faculties and Scholars are hereby invited to participate and present their research papers. Last date for submission of papers October 30, 2022. Participants may register themselves HERE
