CALL:

The Center for the Study of Myth & Religion in Greek & Roman Antiquity (affiliated with the Department of Philology, University of Patras) is proud to announce a forthcoming International Conference on "Mythical History & Historical Myth", to be held in summer 2019, at Patras University.

The Conference welcomes papers asking opportune questions and – hopefully – reaching enlightened answers, leading to a better understanding of intentional and incidental amalgamation of the mythical and the historical parameters, as well as the perception of History at an early stage of its appearance as a science.

Key notions:

Myth History / Historiography Logos Tradition Narrative Story-telling Art / Archaeology

and key themes:

Origins / aetiology Interpretation, aims, use and abuse Rationalization (ancient and modern), critique Incongruities (logical, chronological, etc.) Attitudes, (mis)conception (ancient & modern) Figurative vs Literary language, Symbolism Values, customs, morality, law
