The Age of ‘Hero’s: Eroticism and Cultural History in Imperial Greek Epic - 03-04/07/2017, Cambridge

We are pleased to announce the conference ‘The Age of ‘Hero’s: Eroticism and Cultural History in Imperial Greek Epic’ from 3rd-4th July at the Faculty of Classics in Cambridge. This conference, under the aegis of the AHRC-funded ‘Greek Epic of the Roman Empire: A Cultural History’ project at the University of Cambridge, focuses upon the erotic ideologies to be found in Greek epic texts of the imperial era, both in the more explicitly erotic texts such as Musaeus’ ‘Hero and Leander’, Colluthus’ ‘Abduction of Helen’, and Nonnus’ ‘Dionysiaca’ and in less expected places as well. The aim of this conference is to link such erotics to literary and historical trends, both within traditions of eroticism of earlier classical periods and the contemporary cultural context of late antiquity.
