CFP: Psychology and the Classics

Seen on the Classicists list:

International conference: Leuven (Belgium), 24-27 March 2015
Final Call for Papers – Deadline expires next Monday

Psychology and the Classics: A Dialogue of Disciplines

Key-note speakers: Rachel Bowlby, Christopher Gill, and Jennifer Radden.

This conference aims to bring together scholars from the fields of classics
and psychology in order to determine what they have to offer to each other
in terms of hermeneutic approaches, research questions, and methodological
legitimation. Both the field of classics and that of psychology are here to
be conceived in the widest sense possible, comprising, in case of the
former, ancient philosophy, history, rhetoric, and literature, and, in case
of the latter, psychoanalysis, social psychology, theories of emotion, and
neuroscience. A more extensive overview of the research questions that all
of these fields can raise in relation to each other can be found on our website:
We welcome innovative contributions from a wide array of scholars.
Preference will be given to papers which have the potential to provoke
fruitful interdisciplinary discussions in an open and convivial atmosphere.
Abstracts for individual contributions (500 words), panels (1000 words), or
alternative formats, along with a short CV of 3 or 4 lines, should reach us
before 31 March 2014 on psychologyandtheclassics AT All
proposals and contributions are expected to be in English. Early career
researchers are especially encouraged to send in an abstract.

Organizing committee: Pieter Adriaens (KU Leuven), Koen De Temmerman
(University of Ghent), Jeroen Lauwers (KU Leuven), Anneleen Masschelein (KU
Leuven), Jan Opsomer (KU Leuven), Hedwig Schwall (KU Leuven), Toon Van Houdt
(KU Leuven), Demmy Verbeke (KU Leuven).
