Would extraterrestrial intelligence have language?

In 2004, Catullus scholars gathered in the Treehouse at The University of Newcastle to talk Catullus. This memorable event, aptly named ‘Catullus in the Treehouse,’ resulted in the first Special Issue of Antichthon, ‘Catullus in Contemporary Perspective’ in 2006.
After 14 years, and due to popular demand, it’s time to revisit ‘Catullus in the Treehouse’ with another one-day conference to celebrate Catullus, his poetry, his life and his legacy.
