Fragmentary evidence frequently lacks the context we need to make proper sense of it and leads us to speculate about what that whole may have comprised. Thus, while we seek to endow the surviving fragment with meaning, we also ponder the nature of what has been lost.
This event will focus particularly on what it means to work with fragments, including fragments of Attic tragedy, Hellenistic oratory, the ancient novel and fragmented narratives on decorated pots. We will also consider possible intersections with ancient forgeries.
