11th Trends in Classics on Roman Intratextuality
The Department of Classics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki & The Corpus Christi College Centre for the Study of Greek and Roman Antiquity, University of Oxford announce the 11th Trends in Classics Conference on “Intratextuality and Roman Literature” to be held in Thessaloniki from May 25 to 27, 2017.
The keynote speaker is: Alison Sharrock (University of Manchester).
Recent years have witnessed an increased interest of classical studies in the ways meaning is generated through the medium of intertextuality, namely how different texts of the same or different authors communicate and interact with each other. Attention (although on a lesser scale) has also been paid to the manner in which meaning is produced through interfaces between various parts of the same text within the overall production of a single author, namely intratexts. Taking a leaf out of the seminal volume on Intratextuality: Greek and Roman Textual Relations, edited by Alison Sharrock and Helen Morales(Oxford 2000), which largely sets the theoretical framework for internal associations within Classical texts, the conference will address issues of intratextuality in Latin poetry and prose. Of interest will also be the ways in which the poetics of intratextuality are received by later authors within the same genre or not, i.e. a combination of intertextual and intratextual poetics.
