CALL. 15.10.2015 - International Conference: Classical reception and the human, Patras (Greece)



LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: University of Patras (Patras, Greece)

ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Efimia D. Karakantza; Efstathia Athanasopoulou

INFO: call -


We focus on the following research questions:

  • How has classical reception (e.g. newly-translated Greek texts, Neo-Latin drama, early modern tragic adaptations) influenced Renaissance humanistic discourses, thought and culture?

  • How have re-readings of antiquity informed literary, theatrical or other reconfigurations of the human in 18th and 19th century?

  • Are the adaptations of Greco-Roman drama a locus for the contemplation, expression and vindication of human rights?

  • How do ideological appropriations of the past allow for the legitimization of fascist agendas and the perpetuation of inhumanities?

  • How can the classics help us rethink the (post)human in theory and practice after the demise of liberal individualism and the emergence of multiple permeated digital and non-digital, organic and inorganic subjectivities?

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words on the aforementioned subject areas to by October 15th 2015.
