CLASSICS: THE PAST, THE PRESENT, AND THE FUTURE
UNIVERSITY OF HRADEC KRÁLOVÉ
(1-3 June 2024)
The international research team based at the University of Hradec Králové is organising a conference on the past, the present, and the future of the Classics in the frame of the project Oral History and the Classics (www.memoryclassics.eu). We primarily aim at the personal experience of being a classical scholar. What was my intellectual path? How did I think about my discipline in the past and what do I think about it know? How have the Classics evolved during my career? What influence have educational policy and politics in general exerted upon the Classics as a part of humanities? These are only a few of the questions and problems we intend to raise and address.
We consider specialists in classical philology, archaeologists, historians, historians of ancient philosophy, politics, and culture to be a part of a large classics family that also includes researchers of classical traditions. We invite academics to submit their ideas and to share their experience of the Classics. We hope that our programme will include four keynote speakers, Prof. Neville Morley (University of Exeter) and Prof. Cinzia Bearzot in the section Classics: why it matters? and Prof. Filip Karfík (Universität Fribourg) and Prof. Sophie Mills (University of North Carolina) in the section My intellectual path.
- My intellectual path: motivations, aims, obstacles, achievements, people, institutions, politics
- Classics: Why It Matters?
- Transformation of the Classics
- Digital Classics
- AI and the Classics
- Politics and the Classics
- Decolonising the Classics
