Greek Epic and Lyric Fragments from the Archaic to the Imperial Era: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

UCL, 2-4 July 2014

For over a century the study of fragmentary texts has substantially and often spectacularly transformed our picture of Greek poetry: new poems (and even poets) emerge from oblivion, while previously known texts are seen in a new light, and the existing corpora are enriched and reshaped. As a result, long-held views on various works, poets and genres are challenged, and our knowledge of ancient literature and culture continues to advance.

The Song Regained international conference aims to bring together presentations from an international array of established scholars as well as younger researchers who currently work on Greek epic and lyric fragments, older or new unpublished material (via production of editions, commentaries, etc.); and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on current research in the field of Greek literary poetic fragments.

The conference, and the associated training workshop, is a collaboration between the Department of Greek and Latin, UCL, and the Department of Classics, KCL.

The conference will take place at UCL:
Conference: Chadwick B05 Lecture Theatre, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT
Reception and Lunches: The Flaxman Gallery, UCL Main Library, Wilkins Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT


Thanks to the generosity of the Classical Association, we are able to offer a number of student bursaries.
