CFP "What's New in Ovidian Studies?"

What’s New in Ovidian Studies?

The International Ovidian Society, a newly formed organization and a new Affiliated Group of the SCS, seeks papers for its panel at the 2020 conference in Washington, D.C.  Among the Society’s greatest purposes are to encourage future scholarship on Ovid, to support younger scholars and new work in Ovid, and to reach out beyond Classics to scholars in other fields, as well as to performers and artists, who do significant work related to Ovid and Ovidian reception. 

The theme for our 2020 panel is “What’s New in Ovidian Studies?”  With this panel, we hope to showcase new approaches to, and new topics in, the study of Ovidian poetry.  We encourage all kinds of abstracts and we aim to provide a wide-ranging panel that looks to the future, providing both innovative topics and a broad spread overall of new directions for Ovidian studies.

Send questions to the co-organizers, Sharon James (sljames@unc.edu) and Alison Keith (akeith@chass.utoronto.ca).

Please send an abstract for a 20-minute paper as an email attachment to lfulkerson@fsu.edu by February 8, 2019, listing the title of this panel as the subject line of the email. The text of the abstract should not mention the name of the author, but the email message should provide name, abstract title, and affiliation.  Abstracts must be 650 words or fewer and follow the SCS guidelines for individual abstracts (https://classicalstudies.org/annual-meeting/guidelines-authors-abstracts), but should include works cited at the end of the document, not in a separate text box.  Submissions will be reviewed by third-party referees, who will make final selections by the end of March.
