(Re)viewing Reality: Visuality and Perception in the Ancient World - 01-02/04/2016, Toronto (Canada)



The graduate students of the Department of Classics invite papers that will explore how ancient thinkers, authors, and artists negotiated the paradoxes of vision and its relation to truth, however truth may be conceived. Although seeing and knowing were deeply linked both linguistically and conceptually, the relation between the two was not entirely transparent. Perception and misperception informed the ancients? understanding of their own realities in potentially disruptive and/or distorting ways. We aim to investigate how visual perception operated as a medium of comprehension, and how it continues to shape our own sense of the ancient world.
