The Odeon Project, a university cultural project for the study and divulgation of classical culture, is organising in May 2019 its fourth inter-university conference, dedicated to postgraduates (or, exceptionally, soon-to-be graduates) or PhDs in humanistic, historical, anthropological and philosophical studies.
** Subjects of the discussion
The conference’s aim is to analyse all the literary, philological, anthropological, philosophical, historical, folkloric values and meaning that a broad theme such as that of the night can offer in Greek and Latin literary texts, either in prose or poetry, extant or fragmentary, handed down by papyrus or scrolls, epigraphs or other finds.
The historical period taken into account is the one that goes from the first examples of epic poetry (the Epic of Gilgamesh in Middle East, the Iliad and the Odyssey in Greece) to the Greek and Latin medieval literary production (the chronological limit is fixed on the birth of national languages, for Latin literature, and on the fall of Constantinople in 1453, for Greek and Byzantine literature), including Near-Eastern, Hebrew and ancient Christian literary productions.
** Participation procedures
The conference is open to all students from Italian or European Universities who are currently studying for a master’s degree or a PhD (half of the candidates will be chosen between master students and half between PhD students, to maintain and preserve the young students’ attendance and growth that has always been of crucial importance for this project from its very beginning, four years ago); exceptionally and under the unquestionable judgement of the Scientific Committee, students who have not yet earned a bachelor’s degree but who are committed to earning one before the end of 2019 may be accepted to the conference.
In order to participate as speakers, it is necessary to send to firstname.lastname@example.org an email containing:
· an abstract (around 300 words) of the speech which the author intends to present at the conference (together with the title);
· a brief curriculum vitae et studiorum presenting the candidate’s qualifications and the university attended.
Each speech will last about 25-30 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minutes discussion; preferred languages of communication are Italian and English (French, Spanish and German candidacies will however be considered and valued).
By March 2019 the Scientific Committee, composed of graduates from Odeon Project, will publish the list of the selected speakers.
Eventual refunds for speakers coming from foreign countries or from Regions different from Piedmont and Aosta Valley will eventually be determined.
By decision of the Scientific Committee a printed or digital copy of the conference proceedings may be published.
