Symposium: Classicising learning, performance and power - 12-13-14/12/2019, Edinburgh (Scotland)
The symposium brings together scholars from across North America, Europe and Asia in order to explore how public performances of classicising learning (however defined in each culture) influenced and served imperial or state power in premodern political systems across Eurasia and North Africa. Aiming at encouraging scholarly exchanges among experts in different fields and cultures, the papers relate to the following three interconnected thematic strands: (a) Classicising learning and the social order, (b) Classicising learning and the political order, and (c) Classicising learning and the self.
