Registration for AMPRAW 2014 conference now open!


Senate House, University of London, 24-25 November 2014

Dear Colleagues,

The AMPRAW 2014 committee is delighted to announce that registration for the fourth Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in the Reception of the Ancient World (AMPRAW) is now open!

AMPRAW 2014 is a two-day conference that aims to provide both UK and international postgraduate students from all disciplines with the opportunity to present their research to the growing academic community working on the reception of the classical world in both ancient and modern cultural contexts.

The focus of AMPRAW 2014 is the notion of authenticity in the reception of the ancient world. This topic addresses some of the most immediate issues arising from the increasingly influential role of academia in the creation of products of classical reception. The focus on authenticity offers a rare chance for postgraduates working in diverse areas of research in classical studies to contribute a variety of perspectives on one topic, enhancing their understanding of the ways in which questions of authenticity pervade different areas of scholarship.

In addition to chaired panels, delegates at AMPRAW 2014 can experience the following conference highlights:

-A keynote lecture from Dr. Nick Lowe
-An excursion to the British Museum for a tour with a special focus on issues of authenticity in museum collections and exhibitions
-A roundtable discussion among academics and practitioners who have worked on performance adaptations of ancient drama and epic for the modern stage
-Special guest talks from Professor Mary-Kay Gamel and award-winning author Geraldine McCaughrean
-A performance of the Bacchae from By Jove Theatre Company

Conference delegates will also have the opportunity to socialise at a wine reception sponsored by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies, followed by the conference dinner on the evening of 25 November.
