8th Trends in Classics: Thessaloniki International Conference on Roman Drama

Scholarship in the field of Roman drama, especially in the past, has consisted largely of studying it from the perspective of its relation to Greek and Roman prototypes, as well as in terms of its historical context and evolution as a literary form. More contemporary studies, which are based on groundbreaking new intertextual, dramatological, theatrological, performative, psychoanalytical, feminist and gender-oriented approaches, offer valuable new insights into the poetics of Roman drama and its cultural impact.

We're delighted to support this conference organised by the School of Philology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, which focuses on the interpretation of both Roman comedy and Roman tragedy on the basis of such diverse approaches. By highlighting the various aesthetic, social and historical parameters, the conference papers will explore ways in which Roman comic and tragic texts fit into their narrower and/or broader textual and cultural contexts.
