European Classical Reception Research Network launch event led by the University of St Andrews

4-6pm, 29 May 2021 (online)

This workshop is designed to bring together postgraduate students and early career researchers interested in the evolving field of classical reception. Intended as a launch event for the new student and Scottish-led European Classical Reception Research Network, the meeting will facilitate the exchange of ideas and ongoing collaboration between an international group of promising young scholars. It will provide a forum for the collaborative consideration of the ways in which various aspects of antiquity have been reinterpreted or appropriated and deployed by individual, state, or institutional actors over time. We invite participation from historians, classicists, linguists, art historians, literary scholars, or scholars of any other relevant discipline.

This launch event will include brief remarks and training sessions led by Dr. Helen Roche of Durham University and Dr. Henry Stead of St Andrews. Each session will take the form of an interactive workshop and address the potential challenges emerging scholars interested in classical reception might face as they complete their studies or advance their academic careers. By discussing general methodological approaches, current scholarly focus, modes of popular outreach, and the relationships between scholarship, pedagogical trends, and current socio-political discourse, these training sessions will help prepare attendees to make a sizable contribution to a rapidly changing field.

Registration will be capped at twenty participants. This event will be held online via Microsoft Teams, with a link to follow once registered.  Attendance is free but advance registration is necessary at
