Latin Lexicography Summer Workshop: 30 July – 4 August, 2018
Thesaurus linguae Latinae Institute
Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Munich
The Thesaurus linguae Latinae Institute announces its first annual Latin Lexicography Workshop, a one-week event in Munich, July 30 to August 4, 2018. We invite participation by researchers at any stage in their career whose work involves the rigorous evaluation of Latin words in any aspect, ranging from their use in specific texts or their changing significance across the entire corpus of ancient Latin. In addition to philology, relevant disciplines include conceptual and intellectual history, epigraphy, linguistics, literary and textual criticism, medieval and Renaissance studies, philosophy, and theology.

Τὰ μεταξύ - Knowing where to draw the line: Intermediates and Dianoia in Plato
Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College
5353 Parkside Drive
Jupiter, FL 33458
We read in Aristotle’s Metaphysics that Plato regarded mathematical objects as intermediate between forms and particulars (987b14-18). Nowhere in the dialogues does Socrates talk explicitly about these “intermediates,” although it could be argued that there are several texts in which the intermediates are implied. Even if the intermediates were implied, however, it is not at all clear that they match up with the account that Aristotle gives us. The purpose of this event is to reconsider the evidence for and against the intermediates in the Platonic dialogues. Presentations on the ontological status of the objects of dianoia in Plato will be included.
The 15th International FIEC Congress will be held in London, 4-8 July, 2019, hosted by the Classical Association, the Hellenic Society and the Roman Society, in collaboration with the Institute of Classical Studies, London, UCL, KCL, Birkbeck College, Royal Holloway University of London and Roehampton University.
The Congress will take place at the Institute of Education (University College London) in Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum, British Library, and the University of London’s Senate House.
