THEORIZING CONTACTS IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE
UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH, 8-9 December 2017
We live in a multicultural world, in which every community develops in constant interaction with others. A series of theoretical models have been developed to explain these contacts, which in recent years have been utilized to understand the ancient world. In the context of the Roman empire, these theories are typically used to examine the interactions of various indigenous populations with their rulers. These kinds of studies were once grouped under the heading “Romanization”, though the increased questioning of the term’s validity has given rise to a diverse range of alternatives. These are often drawn from modern theoretical backgrounds: multiculturalism and multilingualism are two recent concepts employed in this realm.
The Celtic Conference in Classics in Montreal (July 19-21, 2017) has set its conference program. The panels and their speakers can be found at www.celticconferenceclassics.com. Panels cover a broad range of current debates in Classics including the problem of the fragmentary, epic and elegy, reception of classical drama, oratory and identity, ethnicity and imperialism, new directions in Plato, consciousness in Late Antiquity, and popular classics, to name a few. The CCC2017 cordially invites students, scholars, and interested parties to participate in the proceedings and enjoy collegial conversations on all things Classical.
