ALSCW Annual Conference. Panel "Achilles in the Greco-Roman world" - 27-28-29-30/10/2016, Washington D.C. (USA)



Since Achilles is the protagonist of the ancient world’s dominant epic, his influential role in the Greco-Roman tradition comes as no surprise. What does surprise is the variety of his instantiations. The Iliadic Achilles does not dominate the hero’s post-Homeric reception, and Achilles is presented (as Pantelis Michelakis points out in Achilles in Greek Tragedy [Cambridge, 2002], 1) “both as a model and as a problem.” This seminar will consider the Achilles tradition in diverse ancient eras and contexts.  Starting points might include (but are not limited to): epinician Achilles; Achilles and pederasty; Achilles as son and father; Achilles in Latin elegy; iconography of the hero.


Confirmed speakers include Sarah Ferrario, The Catholic University of America; Justina Gregory, Smith College; Charles McNelis, Georgetown University; and Deborah Steiner, Columbia University
