Third Interdisciplinary Symposium on the Heritage of Western Greece
with special emphasis on Μίμησις – Μimēsis: imitation, emulation, representation, reenactment
Sicily Center for International Education
Syracuse, Sicily, May 25-28, 2017
The cultural and intellectual legacy of Western Greece—the coastal areas of Southern Italy and Sicily settled by Hellenes in the 8th and 7th centuries BCE—is sometimes overlooked in academia. Yet evidence suggests that poets, playwrights, philosophers, and other maverick intellectuals found fertile ground here for the growth of their ideas and the harvesting of their work. The goal of the Fonte Aretusa organization is to revive the distinctive spirit of Western Greece by exploring it from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including art history, archaeology, classics, drama, epigraphy, history, philosophy and religion.
As part of the celebrations of the Bimillenium of Livy’s death in 2017, the Center for Livian Studies (University of Padua, Italy) will hold an International Conference in Padua on 6-10 November 2017.
The conference will approach Livy’s Ab Urbe condita libri and their reception from a broad and multidisciplinary perspective, focusing on a) Literary and Philological aspects; b) Historical and Archaeological aspects; c) Livy’s reception.
The conference will include key lectures delivered by invited specialists and sessions reserved to young scholars.
PhD students, post-doc and researchers are invited to submit abstracts for a 20 minutes talk on the aforementioned subjects. Possible themes of the talk may be:
The Newberry Library's long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library's collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.
Please note that we have extended the deadline from November 30, 2016 to February 1, 2017.

The online companion to the print book The Worlds of Roman Women is an important resource that should be far more widely known and used than it is. It offers annotated primary texts, images, and pedagogical materials for teachers of Latin and was called “the gold standard for a web translation resource for intermediate as well as more advanced students,” by Andrew Reinhard nearly a decade ago, and this judgment is still accurate—not because of a sleek or beautiful interface, but because of the wealth of carefully curated content it provides.
