Conference: Classical Encounters: Receptions of antiquity in the long nineteenth century

22nd June 2019, 09:00, Pemberton Rooms (PG21), Palace Green, Durham University

‘Classical Encounters: Receptions of antiquity in the long nineteenth century’ will bring together scholars from a broad range of disciplines to explore encounters with the ancient world in nineteenth-century visual, material, literary and political culture and the implications of these encounters on discourses such as nationhood, colonialism, race, religion, gender, sexuality and death. A roundtable will offer interdisciplinary interventions on classical receptions to discuss the future(s) of reception studies.

The event is free to attend and registration open to all. Postgraduate and early career researchers working in classical reception are especially encouraged to attend.
