From the Hellenistic to the
Early Byzantine Era
Organisers: M. Kanellou (UCL), C. Carey (UCL), I. Petrovic (Durham)
Though there has been a surge in interest in Greek literary epigram during the last decades, much of the discussion still centres on the Hellenistic period or on specific poets. This conference, which brought together some of the most distinguished international experts in the field, sought to explore the genre on a larger canvas, combining a wider chronological sweep with a precise focus on key themes. This website brings together the conference papers as delivered for those who wanted to be there but couldn't - or just those who would like to understand the epigram better.
For an independent review of the conference by Sam Hayes, Ph.D. student at the University of Exeter, see: http://classicscollective.wordpress.com/
After having published the talks on-line, the organisers are pleased to announce that they also plan to publish the conference proceedings in book form. More updates to follow soon.
