Universities in Wales Institute of Classics and Ancient History (UWICAH) Postgraduate Conference 2016: ‘Ancients Behaving Badly’ - 19/11/2016, Swansea (Wales)






Swansea University’s Department of Classics, Ancient History, and Egyptology is proud to announce that we will be hosting the fourth-annual Universities in Wales Institute of Classics and Ancient History (UWICAH) Conference. The conference will be held on Saturday 19th November 2016 at Swansea University’s Singleton Campus and will have the theme of ‘Ancients Behaving Badly’. Definitions of ‘bad behaviour’ have always been subjective, varying greatly between historical or literary context(s), and, as such, we encourage both loose and imaginative interpretations of the conference theme. Examples of paper topics could include, but are not limited to: contravening social and religious norms, authors acting outside of generic conventions, ancient social practices and their ethical repercussions, artistic depictions of individuals engaging in bad behaviour, political or religious protest in antiquity, etc.
