Teaching Roman Oratory beyond Cicero - 09/11/2016, Glasgow (Scotland)
Is it possible to teach Roman oratory without resorting to Cicero? This colloquium, part of the European Research Council-funded project ‘The Fragments of the Republican Roman Orators’, based at the University of Glasgow, seeks to explore this question.
The purpose of the day is to consider whether it is possible to teach Roman oratory with reference to orators other than Cicero, particularly for the period prior to 27 B.C., and if so, what kinds of materials and approaches are required. The colloquium will consider the needs of both undergraduate and post-graduate students. Keynote speakers are Luke Pitcher, Lynn Fotheringham, and Federico Santangelo.
