Transmitting a Heritage. The Teaching of Ancient Languages from Antiquity to the 21st Century - 16-1


As with the previous conferences, Polis wishes to provide an international and interdisciplinary framework, gathering linguists, historians, philosophers and specialists from other disciplines of the humanities, in order to facilitate lively and profound debates among them.

Consequently, every presentation (with a maximum duration of 20 minutes) will be followed by 15 minutes of discussion, in which the present experts and members of the general audience may exchange opinions and suggestions around the topic of the presentation. These debates will be recorded, transcribed and published together with their articles in the proceedings. This book will also feature a general introduction that will show the points of convergence between participants as well as possible breakthroughs in research. The articles themselves will be published in the language in which they were presented (English, French or Latin), preceded by a small summary in either Latin or Greek. The editors of the proceedings will be Christophe Rico, director of the Polis Institute, and Jason Pedicone, president of Paideia Institute.

It is highly desirable that the resulting book, through its inner consistency, will renew and reinvigorate the scientific debate on this core topic within the humanities.
