Named after the book published in 1964 by Pierre Lévèque and Pierre Vidal-Naquet1, this workshop welcomes papers in French, English, German, Spanish and Italian devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Ancient Greek Thought and Practice, from Homer to Plato. These papers should voluntary trespass the traditional academic boundaries of literature, history, philosophy and science. Much as Pierre Lévèque and Pierre Vidal-Naquet understood the political reforms of Cleisthenes in the light of Anaximander's philosophy, papers should ideally connect at least two objects or corpora usually studied within the specialized disciplinary framework of either classics, ancient history, or the history of ancient philosophy and sciences. This would necessarily entail connecting such traditionally discrete objects of inquiry as, for some examples, Pindar and Parmenides ; Pericles and the Sophists ; tragedy and astronomy ; Homer and botany ; military practices and mathematics ; uses of mythology and history ; Hesiod and philosophy ; Presocratics, political thought and practices. 2016 keynote speakers : Suzanne Saïd (University of Columbia, N.Y., Université de Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense) Paul Demont (Université Paris Sorbonne).
All speakers from the CFP will have 50 minutes to speak, followed by a 40-minute discussion. The workshop covers one night of accommodation in Besançon, dinner on the 31st, and breakfast and lunch on the 1st. Please send paper proposals of no more than 1000 words in both PDF and text format to email@example.com, before January 5th, 2016. Evaluation results will be announced before January 15th.
