The Fixed Handout Workshop: Exercises and Variations in Reading Latin Texts - 16-17/04/2016, Cambrid



Latin studies nowadays bristle with a variety of very different approaches and theoretical methodologies, some of which are consciously and explicitly professed by scholars – but many of them are latent or unrecognised. As John Ma showed in 1994 in his masterly exercice de style “Black HunterVariations,” the scholars’ conscious or subconscious entrenchment into their own preferred methodologies risks producing a stagnation of research which is as dishonest as it is unproductive. Today, textual criticism, structuralism, post-structuralism, new historicism, Marxist and psychoanalytic criticism, gender and postcolonial studies (to offer a suggestive and by no means exhaustive list) all function as different lenses through which our textsare suddenly reframed and transformed, and yet the greater value of such polyphony of approaches lies in the possibility of cross-fertilization.
