CFP: Integrity and Corruption in Antiquity

Seen on Classicists (please send any responses to the people/institution mentioned in the post, not to rogueclassicism!)



You are cordially invited to submit paper proposals for this year’s Unisa
Classics Colloquium. Papers concerned with any aspect of the conference
theme in the ancient world will be considered. Scholars working on
historical, literary, oratorical, religious, philosophical, epigraphical
and other material are welcome to contribute.

The Unisa Classics Colloquium is hosted by the Department of Classics and
World Languages at the University of South Africa, Pretoria. Invited guest
speakers to this year’s conference are:

Clifford Ando (Chicago), “Two revolutions in government”
Emily Greenwood (Yale), “The corruptible logos: the politics of speech and
silence in Greek historiography”

Papers will be limited to 45 minutes. Speakers may request a shorter slot
of 20-30 minutes. Please submit abstracts of appr. 200 words via e-mail
attachment to bosmapr AT by the end of June 2010.

Please note that, depending on interest, a third day (23 October) may be
added to the conference programme.

The Unisa Classics Colloquium is held for the 11th time this year. The
conference is deliberately kept small enough to avoid parallel sessions, to
provide enough time for discussion and to promote interaction between
delegates. It presents an excellent platform for young scholars to present
their work. We are at pains to maintain an old tradition of South Africa
hospitality and attempt to show guests from abroad a little of our city and
country during and after the conference.

Further information regarding the conference may be found on the
departmental website at
