Groningen Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry: Callimachus Revisited: New Perspectives in Callimachean Scholarship - 12-13-14/05/2017, Groningen (Netherlands)



The Groningen Workshops on Hellenistic Poetry have over the past 25 years provided an important venue for the presentation of new ideas in the field of Hellenistic poetry. In September 2017 the instigator and organizer of these workshops, Professor Annette Harder, will be retiring from the University of Groningen, which means that an end of the workshops in their present form is imminent.


To honor Annette Harder and fittingly celebrate her career in the service of Hellenistic poetry, whose acme has undoubtedly been the publication of a monumental new edition of Callimachus’ Aetia, we are organizing a final Groningen Workshop entitled,'Callimachus Revisited', on September 13-14, 2017. Callimachus formed the focus of the first Groningen workshop in 1992, and was revisited in 2002. It seems fitting to close the series by returning to this central poet once more, ask how our understanding of Callimachus has developed over the past 25 years, and consider future directions.

LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: Groningen University (Groningen,  Netherlands)
