Literary and Cultural Interactions in the Roman Empire: 96-235 - 13-14/06/2016, Exeter (Engand)

This conference will be the fourth in a series stemming from the Literary Interactions under Nerva, Trajan and Hadrian project.

This fourth conference aims to build on the third’s widening scope, by inviting further discussion of interactions that cross linguistic, cultural and religious boundaries; it will also continue to look behind and beyond purely textual interactions, to scrutinise the interactive dynamics between literary, social and cultural spheres of activity. Its extended chronological scope will enable analysis of diachronic as well as synchronic trends.

FECHA/DATE/DATA: 13-14/06/2016

LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: The Matrix Lecture Theatre, Building: One, University of Exeter (Exeter, England)
