12th Trends in Classics International Conference "Fragmented Parts, Coherent Entities: Reconsidering Fragmentation In Ancient Greek Drama" - 24-25-26-27/05/2018, Thessaloniki (Greece)






This conference will focus on a well studied field of classical scholarship - dramatic fragments. It aims to examine whether they should be approached as parts of a greater whole or as self-contained entities. We are also interested in exploring another kind of fragmentation that seems already to have been embraced by the ancient dramatists: quotations extracted from their context and immersed in a new whole, in which they work both as cohesive and detachable unities.
