Description


Welcome to the seventh Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in the Reception of the Ancient World, hosted this year by the University of Edinburgh. Our theme is 'community'.

In 450/451 BC, Pericles passed a law delineating stricter requirements for obtaining Athenian citizenship. In so doing, he outlined his vision of community. In 2016, the UK voted to leave the European Union, a decision that will have lasting consequences for the concept of community in the UK. Worldwide, political and socio-economic developments continue to test notions of what constitutes a community.

This conference will consider what classical reception studies can tell us about ideas of community, both ancient and modern. What does it mean to belong? What does it mean to be an outsider?

AMPRAW is an interdisciplinary conference exploring the impact and influence of the classical world in literature, art, music, history, drama and popular culture. It is held annually at different UK universities.

AMPRAW 2017 will be held at the University of Edinburgh in the Central Area (click here for an online campus map and here for a PDF version).
