CONF: Cicero Awayday

Seen on Classicists (please send any responses to the folks mentioned in the quoted text, not to rogueclassicism!):

Cicero Awayday VI

Monday 17 May 2010

Newcastle University,
Research Beehive, room 2.20

The Cicero Awaydays offer an informal forum for presenting papers (whether
full-fledged ones or work in progress) on any aspect of Cicero’s life and
works. The first five editions were held, at two-year intervals, in
Scottish universities; this year the day is hosted by Classics at
Newcastle University.

Everyone with an interest in matters Ciceronian is very welcome to attend.
There is no conference fee, but in view of making arrangements, it would
be helpful if anyone planning, or possibly planning, to attend could let
me know by 1 May (at jakob.wisse AT
