International Conference on Classical Antiquity & Memory from the 19th to the 21st Century

Quand l’homme a voulu imiter la marche, il a créé la roue, qui ne ressemble pas à une jambe.
[When man wanted to imitate walking, he invented the wheel, which does not look like a leg.]
Apollinaire, Les mamelles de Tirésias, Préface

 

The program for the International Conference on Classical Antiquity & Memory from the 19th to the 21st Century (Bonn, 28-29-30 September 2017) will shortly be announced. The conference is kindly supported by:

  • Centre for the Classical Tradition (CCT) – University of Bonn
  • Jocasta | Classical Reception Greece – University of Patras
  • Centre for Eastern Mediterranean Studies (GKM) – University of Münster
  • Trinational Graduate College of the Universities of Bonn – Paris IV Sorbonne – Florence “European Founding Myths in Literature, Art & Music
  • Institute of Greece, Rome, and the Classical Tradition (IGRCT) – University of Bristol
  • Centre for Studies on the Classical Tradition (OBTA ) – University of Warsaw
  • IMAGINES Project

Its aim is to be a stepping stone for the establishment of a hub of students, researchers, artists and anyone else interested in the fascinating world of classical antiquities that keeps haunting our post-modernities in the most stunning ways.

Let this conference inaugurate a hub of people, networks, projects who love to… remember and/or forget! Until then, you may have a look at our CFP, to get the general lines to be investigated in our forthcoming conference!
