  3. “Feeding on Dreams: Exiles & Exile in Late Antiquity.” A Workshop at Yale University, 23-25 April 2018

    Being barred from one’s native lands, state and/or community was and continues to be a unique form of punishment. Individuals or groups might not only suffer from physical, economic and legal privation, but also social and cultural exclusion to the point of a kind of social death. In Late Antiquity, the degree of political and religious change made exile perhaps more likely for an increasingly diverse group, but may have also changed the nature of exile itself. Recent work both on conceptual exile and the exile of clerics raises the possibility of expanding the scope of scholarly conversations surrounding the practice in this period. This workshop’s purpose is to consider different experiences and conceptions of formal and informal banishment to arrive at a more holistic understanding of the social, cultural, and literary phenomenon of exile in late antiquity.
