Thucydides the Athenian - 26-27-28-29/06/2018, Athens (Greece)
This conference seeks to put Thucydides back into his native city, exploring the man within his political and social circles, and delving deeper into the realities of Periclean policy and ideology. An international group of scholars will address these questions through analyses of Pericles’ allies and enemies, and Thucydides’ staging of these characters in his narrative as they experience the post-Periclean legacy. Additionally, they will investigate the Periclean building program, and present new ways of using the evidence from the recently discovered cup inscribed by Pericles and members of his milieu.
