Im Lichte der weltweiten Entwicklung durch COVID-19 wurde die für September 2020 geplante Konferenz "Historical Narratives and Memoralization of Collective Violence in Antiquity" durch ein wöchentlich stattfindendes Webinar ersetzt.

Die Abhandlungen des Webinars samt zusätzliche Beiträge werden in einem Sammelband (Collective Violence and Memory in the Ancient Mediterranean) in der Serie "Culture and History of the Ancient Near East" (CHANE) bei Brill veröffentlicht.
