CALL. 31.07.2018: Ilias Latina, International Workshop - Erlangen (Germany)
The Ilias Latina has been one of the reference texts of the Homeric poem until the rediscovery of Greek in the West. After the richly commented edition by Scaffai (1997) and the translation in French with a brief commentary by Fry (2014), the aim of this international Workshop is to focus on this peculiar cultural product.
Confirmed invited speakers:
Anton BIERL (Basel), Caterina CARPINATO (Venezia), Maria J. FALCONE (Erlangen), Thomas GÄRTNER (Köln-Bonn), Gerlinde HUBER-REBENICH (Bern), Christiane REITZ (Rostock), Christoph SCHUBERT (Erlangen).
Public evening lecture:
Maurizio BETTINI (Siena), on the cultural meaning of translation
