Some suggested topics include (but are by no means limited to!): - Invocations of memory and the muses in ancient literature - Memorials and epitaphs - Memory and narration, memory as a narrative instrument - Memory and exemplarity - kleos and fame in epic - Memory and the literary tradition - Classical reception in commemorative literature Please send abstracts of up to 350 words (in PDF format) to email@example.com by the 13th April. Please do not include any identifying information in the abstract but in the body of your email please tell us your name, university affiliation, programme and year of study. We also accept proposals for complete panels of three papers: if you would like to propose a panel, please send all three abstracts in one email (with the details of each speaker in the message body) along with a short (up to 350 words) abstract for the panel as a whole. We will notify applicants of our decision by the 20th April 2018, and the conference will open for registration for speakers and non-speakers in early May.
We hope to see many of you there!
