Impact of Empire is an international research network focusing on the sheer existence of the Roman Empire and the consequences of its actions in the regions it dominated.
The aim of the International Network Impact of Empire is to organize annual interdisciplinary workshops and to publish the ensuing proceedings.
A secondary objective is to give young researchers the opportunity to present their work in an international interdisciplinary setting of senior colleagues, and to profit by the feedback they receive.
