Preliminary CfP: Edited Volume on “Cicero in Greece, Greece in Cicero”

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 30 September 2020


Submissions are invited for an edited volume on “Cicero in Greece, Greece in Cicero”.

In 2021 it will be 2100 years since Cicero's trip to Greece in 79 BCE, which was a significant factor in moulding him as an orator, philosopher and politician. This provides the opportunity to put together new and unpublished material on Cicero's presence in Greece literally, namely for the years he spent in nowadays Modern Greek territory, including his aforementioned travel in 79/78 BCE and the period of his exile in 58/57 BCE, and metaphorically, that is the reception of Cicero in Late Roman, Byzantine, Post-Byzantine, Early Modern, and Modern Greece through translations, studies, imitations, etc. It is also an opportunity to approach from a new point of view the presence of Greece in Cicero, namely how the Greek world, people, language, civilisation, history, philosophy, politics and political theory, religion, geography, etc. appear in his work.

Abstracts for proposed submissions are invited on any of the aforementioned topics. Diverse, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and other approaches to the material are welcome and encouraged. Early career researchers are also encouraged to apply.

The abstracts will be subjected to double blind peer review by other contributors. On the basis of the number of abstracts accepted and their content, a formal proposal for chapters and authors will be submitted to Brepols Publishers for consideration. Once acceptance of the volume is received, the contributors will be invited to submit their full papers.

Abstract Submission: Those interested in contributing to the volume are asked to submit a 500-word abstract and selective bibliography. Abstracts should be sent by e-mail as a PDF attachment to inteligi[at]helit.duth.gr by no later than 30 September 2020. The document should also contain paper title and author information including name, affiliation and contact e-mail address. Notifications will be communicated by no later than 15 November 2020.

For any questions or to submit an abstract, please e-mail Ioannis Deligiannis, Democritus University of Thrace, at inteligi[at]helit.duth.gr
