Classical Encounters: Receptions of Antiquity in the long nineteenth-century - 21-22/06/2019, Durham
‘Classical Encounters: Receptions of antiquity in the long nineteenth century’ will bring together scholars from a broad range of disciplines to explore encounters with the ancient world in nineteenth-century visual, material, literary and political culture and the implications of these encounters on discourses such as nationhood, colonialism, race, religion, gender, sexuality and death. A roundtable will offer interdisciplinary interventions on classical receptions to discuss the future(s) of reception studies.
