Tacitus for the Twenty-first Century. An Interdisciplinary Workshop - 01/04/2019, London (England)


go to CALL FOR PAPERS

Recent years have seen an increasing diversity of approaches to the study of Tacitus. This day-workshop aims to build on that trend by bringing together people who are thinking about Tacitus from a range of disciplinary and methodological perspectives, including philology, political theory, political philosophy, and history, to consider how and why we are reading Tacitus in the twenty-first century. Tacitus has for centuries been a deeply controversial writer; his writings have been seen as having contemporary political resonances throughout the modern period. The workshop considers how those resonances work now how Tacitus might influence our political and literary thought, and how we might understand, question and challenge Tacitus’ writings.
