“O Latest Born and Loveliest Vision Far”
The 2016 Virginia Wesleyan College Symposium on The Romantics and the Classics 
November 17-19, 2016


Even from their distant vantage point at the waning of the eighteenth and the inception of nineteenth century, the English Romantics and their circle bequeath a powerful legacy to the modern world: Shelley's utopian schemes and dreams of equality for the oppressed, Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women, Wordsworth's pantheistic Anglicanism, Byron's rakish peregrinations in Italy and Greece.... all challenged conventional mores while at the same time calling more plodding and conventional British Tories to a higher standard of political fairness and social justice.

12th Moisa Research Seminar on Ancient Greek and Roman Music
Riva del Garda, 3-8 July 2017

Every summer from 2004 to 2011, the Music Department at the Ionian University hosted a week-long seminar on ancient music, which brought together students and scholars from several European, American and Eastern countries. This wonderful event was unfortunately discontinued due to the Greek economic crisis. Given its importance for the rapidly-expanding community of scholars interested in ancient Greek and Roman music, since 2014 the Arion Society has brought the Seminar back to life in a new location: Riva del Garda, in the North of Italy.

Conference: "Ennius, Poetry, and History"

Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books, and Manuscripts
Van Pelt Library, 6th floor
University of Pennsylvania
November 11–12, 2016

Recent years have seen a wealth of new scholarship, much of it explicitly revisionist, on Quintus Ennius, and in particular on his masterpiece, the historical epic poem Annales. At the same time, a fruitful dialogue has emerged among students of Greek and Roman poetry and historiography, in which critical approaches and techniques have begun to flow freely between the two fields. This conference brings together specialists in both fields to assess the current situation all the relevant fields and to explore the most fruitful avenues for further research.
