XI Cicero Away Day - 09/06/2020 (Online)
The department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Birmingham is pleased to announce the call for papers for the Cicero Away Day – 9th June 2020 at University of Birmingham. Cicero Away Days offer an informal and friendly forum in which to present papers on any aspect of Cicero’s life, works, and reception. Therefore, we invite papers on all Ciceronian genres and intergeneric submissions are welcome. This particular iteration of the Cicero Away Day is being organised by AHRC Midlands4Cities (M4C) students, Ben Salisbury (University of Birmingham) and Ashley Chhibber (University of Nottingham), in conjunction with Dr Henriette van der Blom (University of Birmingham). Due to this close association with the M4C Doctoral Training Partnership, we particularly encourage applications from doctoral students at M4C institutions.
