CONF: Triennial Conference of Classical Studies

Seen on the Classicists list (please direct any queries to the folks mentioned in the item and not to rogueclassicism):


From Monday 25 July to Thursday 28 July 2011 the Faculty of Classics in the University of Cambridge will once again host the Triennial Conference of Classical Studies. This Triennial has been given a radically revised format:

Working with a committee that includes representatives of sponsoring bodies (Societies for the Promotion of Hellenic and Roman Studies, British Schools at Athens and Rome), the organizers have been fortunate in attracting a large international cast of speakers, and have tried to cover most sub-disciplines within Classics and Ancient History in greater depth than in the past. The organizers are most grateful to the 145 scholars who have agreed to support this venture by giving, or responding to, papers; among these are Roger Bagnall, Anthony Grafton, Edith Hall, Stephen Hinds, Walter Scheidel, and Caroline Vout, who will give plenary lectures.

They are grateful also to the sponsors who have offered their financial support for this new venture: Cambridge University Press, the Cambridge Philological Society, the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies, Oxford University Press, Harvard University Press, Princeton University Press, Trinity College, Cambridge and the Institute of the Ancient World.

All our colleagues in the study of the ancient world are cordially invited to join us in this triennial national celebration of Classics in a year when we will all be needing to reaffirm the vitality and abiding value of the subject we love. For booking see:
