Preliminary CfP: Edited Volume on “Cicero in Greece, Greece in Cicero”

Submissions are invited for an edited volume on “Cicero in Greece,
Greece in Cicero”.

In 2021 it will be 2100 years since Cicero’s trip to Greece in 79 BCE,
which was a significant factor in moulding him as an orator,
philosopher and politician. This provides the opportunity to put
together new and unpublished material on Cicero’s presence in Greece
literally, namely for the years he spent in nowadays Modern Greek
territory, including his aforementioned travel in 79/78 BCE and the
period of his exile in 58/57 BCE, and metaphorically, that is the
reception of Cicero in Late Roman, Byzantine, Post-Byzantine, Early
Modern, and Modern Greece through translations, studies, imitations,
etc. It is also an opportunity to approach from a new point of view
the presence of Greece in Cicero, namely how the Greek world, people,
language, civilisation, history, philosophy, politics and political
theory, religion, geography, etc. appear in his work.

Abstracts for proposed submissions are invited on any of the
aforementioned topics. Diverse, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary
and other approaches to the material are welcome and encouraged. Early
career researchers are also encouraged to apply.

The abstracts will be subjected to double blind peer review by other
contributors. On the basis of the number of abstracts accepted and
their content, a formal proposal for chapters and authors will be
submitted to Brepols Publishers for consideration. Once acceptance of
the volume is received, the contributors will be invited to submit
their full papers.

Abstract Submission: Those interested in contributing to the volume
are asked to submit a 500-word abstract and selective bibliography.
Abstracts should be sent by e-mail as a PDF attachment to by no later than 30 September 2020. The
document should also contain paper title and author information
including name, affiliation and contact e-mail address. Notifications
will be communicated by no later than 15 November 2020.

For any questions or to submit an abstract, please e-mail Ioannis
