The thematic focus of this PacRim will be Roman Receptions. Papers are invited on such topics as: ***the reception of Roman literature in late antiquity, Renaissance and post-Renaissance Europe and/or the modern world ***the reception of Greek and Roman texts by Roman writers themselves ***the reception of the political and social world in Roman literary texts ***the reception of an inherited canon of Roman authors in modern scholarship ***translation as reception. Papers investigating other kinds of 'Roman Reception' are also strongly encouraged: the organizing theme offers sufficient liberty of interpretation so as to encompass as broad a range of personal research interests as possible. Abstract proposals (200-300 words) for papers (30 minutes maximum) should be sent to me at this email address. I'll provide a submission link into the web address below. Please have abstracts submitted by January 31, 2017. I am building a conference website at http://pacrim2017.sdsu.edu/ where I'll build a list of affordable hotels with convenient access to the campus as well as means of transportation to and from the airport and around town. Conference fee: $40.00 (or its currency equivalent) per person (which can be waived for those delivering papers) will help offset daily seminar costs. A fee reduction for students will be offered.
