Flavian Campania - 16-17-18/09/2015, Napoli (Italy)

Campania occupies a prominent role in the literature of the Flavian period, as an area well-known for its fertility, spectacular villas, but also as a place of poetic activity (Statius and Silius Italicus in particular). Statius and Martial celebrate Campania in the Silvae and the Epigrams respectively, while the area is featured also in the epic poems of the period (e.g., Valerius Flaccus’ description of Vesuvius’ eruption), especially in the Punica, as the place where Hannibal spends considerable time during the Second Punic War (Liternum, Capua, Campi Phlegraei).

The International Conference Flavian Campania seeks proposals by researchers in the Flavian period (Greek and Latin authors) who will discuss these literary representations and perspectives of Campania in a variety of authors and genres (epic, lyric poetry, epigram, historiography, natural history, geography, ethnography).
