Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Workshop “Into new frames. De-contextualisation and Transmediality in Ancient Literatures" - 28-29/09/2016, Berlin (Germany)




The workshop aims at exploring the phenomenon of de- and re-contextualisation of Ancient Greek works into new literary, cultural and social contexts. Especially in the archaic and classical period the genres of Ancient Greek literature were attached to one specific occasion and cultural context, but later re-framing and re-performance into new contexts were not rare. Particularly interesting is also the translation of contents into different media and new spatial settings, from text to image, or vice versa.
