We are glad to announce a new conference and its first call for
papers in the joint organization of the Institute of  Iberian
and Ibero-American studies and the Oriental Institute, the
Georg-August University of Goettingen, Seminar für Romanische
Philologie and the Department of Egyptology of the University
of Warsaw taking place in Warsaw 19 – 21 June 2017. The
abstract deadline is the 28th of February 2017.

Perspective" seeks to address a question that has received little

interact with, and influence each other. The focus of the conference
will be on the civilizations of Egypt and Mesoamerica, where there
is abundant evidence for the interplay of systems in books and on
monuments. The interdisciplinary nature of the conference will
profit from additional contributions relating to cultures and
systems beyond the bounds of this focal area. Thus, proposals
are welcome, and actively sought, from specialists with other
regional interests, such as Mesopotamia, Anatolia, India, and
