CALL:

 

We are delighted to announce a two-day international conference on mountains in Ancient Greek and Roman culture, to be held at St Andrews in June 2017. We aim to explore ancient engagement with mountains from a wide range of different angles, including literary, historical, archaeological and art-historical approaches, and to open up a series of new questions for further study. We particularly welcome contributions that analyse views of and from mountains; the literary and visual function of representations of mountains and the significance of mountains for ancient thought; the contribution of mountains to the lived experience, self-representation and identity of ancient communities; and the post-classical reception of ancient thinking about mountains.

 

Invited contributors include Alexis Belis, Richard Buxton, Klaus Geus, Thomas Poiss, Betsey Robinson, Irina Tupikova, and Gareth Williams.

 

If you are interested in offering a 30-minute paper, please send an abstract of up to 500 words by the 15th September to both Jason König at jpk3@st-andrews.ac.uk and Nikoletta Manioti atnm66@st-andrews.ac.uk

 

Do not hesitate to contact us via email if you have any questions.
