Conf: Myth and Literature in Ancient Philosophy

I’m pleased to announce, along with my co-organisers [1], a conference for junior researchers hosted by the ancient philosophy caucus of the Faculty of Classics at the University of Cambridge on April 15-16, 2011. The theme of the conference is the engagement of ancient philosophers with myth and literature, and we have six graduate papers covering a diverse range of topics, complemented by two keynotes by Prof Catherine Osborne (UEA) and Dr Kurt Lampe (Bristol). A programme with titles of talks will be released shortly, and further information is available at our conference website. I encourage anyone who is considering attending to register; we are happy to arrange accommodation on your behalf in Cambridge.

[1] Matthew Duncombe, Tamer Nawar, and Christina Hoenig, who are all PhD students in ancient philosophy.
