Systems of Style in Ancient Rhetoric and Literary Criticism - 14-21-28/10, 04-11-18-25/11, 02/12/20
The theme of the seminar series is ancient stylistic theory. Meetings are held weekly frequency alternately in UCL and Oxford, and are meant as an opportunity for students and junior scholars to engage directly with fundamental but relatively little-read ancient works of rhetoric and literary criticism. Experts will describe the theory of style of different Greek and Latin rhetoricians and focus on significant aspects by means of text-based presentations. Participants will be told in advance what primary sources will be examined (Greek and Latin rhetorical handbooks, works of literary criticism, progymnasmata, etc.) and will be encouraged to actively take part in the discussion in an informal and cooperative atmosphere.
