(Virtual Meeting Format) 

Hesperides Sponsored Session 

"Hesperian Transformations: New Approaches to the Classical Tradition" 

Proposal Deadline: July 12, 2021 

  

Hesperides, a new scholarly organization for the study of the legacies of the ancient Mediterranean in Luso-Hispanic contexts, invites papers for a panel at the upcoming conference of FIEC, to be held virtually in Mexico in 2022. This session, part of “Module 1: Discourses of appropriation and identity,” will showcase the breadth of contemporary scholarship on diverse manifestations of Greco-Roman traditions across and between Iberian contact zones, from the Mediterranean, to the Americas, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and beyond. 

​ 

To present the most inclusive snapshot of current scholarship in these contexts, this panel seeks papers that transcend traditional disciplinary distinctions, periodizations, geographic boundaries, and linguistic divides. We therefore welcome submissions from scholars whose work engages with classical legacies as they intersect with any of these cultural, geographic, or linguistic contexts, from premodernity to the 21st century. 

​ 

The panel invites participants to consider these perspectives through the metaphor of transformation, which gives equal emphasis to receiving contexts and received cultures (Baker, Helmrath and Kallendorf 2019), or through alternative methodologies that highlight the importance of such contexts for the modification of received cultures. Successful submissions will reflect on these Hesperian transformations for current conceptions of the discipline of classics more generally. Possible areas of inquiry include: 

​ 

—new methods and theoretical models for interpreting the uses of classical antiquity beyond the Global North 

​​ 

—studies of classical reception that trace original political, ideological or philosophical re-elaborations of antiquity in Luso-Hispanic contexts 

​ 

—the contributions of those who have been overlooked in previous scholarship, such as indigenous, Afrodescendent, and female voices 

​​ 

—diverse forms of cultural production, learned and popular, across media and modality, representing non-elite in addition to elite perspectives 

​​ 

—analyses of classical reception through the lenses of non-European modalities of time, space, ontology and epistemologies 

​​ 

—aesthetic or literary studies of classical texts and art that acquire new forms or different meanings in Luso-Hispanic contexts 

​​ 

—engagement with critical theories and frameworks outside the field of classics that enrich the study of antiquity and its reception 

​ 

Please send a proposal for a 20-minute paper as an email attachment (Microsoft Word .doc) to , with the title “FIEC: Hesperian Transformations” in the subject line. The deadline for submissions is July 5, 2021. Submissions should include the information indicated below and will be reviewed anonymously by the organizers, who will make final selections by July 19, 2021. The languages of FIEC are English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Please include the following information in your proposal submission: 

  • Name 
  • Country 

  • Institutional affiliation 

  • Academic degree 

  • Discipline/career 

  • Reference information for your three most recent publications 

  • Title for proposed paper

Many thanks to Bob Kaster for sharing this video (http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/index.php/extwidget/openGraph/wid/1_c15snnrq)of excerpts from conversations his colleague Brooke Holmes had with some alumni and alumnae last spring: they represent a wide range of ages and career paths, but they're all united by their love for Classics and their gratitude for the world it opened to them.

I want to provide an update on the steps we are taking to implement the change in the name of the  Association that the members approved this summer.  With the help of incoming President Kathryn Gutzwiller, I formed an ad hoc committee consisting of members who represent various communities in our society to consider issues such as communicating with audiences outside the membership and guiding the graphic designer who is creating a new logo for us.

As part of this process we have learned that taking the legal steps required to change our name is the easiest task ahead of us.  We are incorporated in Delaware, and that state requires only that we file a simple form and pay a modest fee.  Legally we will become the Society for Classical Studies as soon as we make that filing.  Before we take that step, we want to have a logo ready and decide how the new name and its “subtitle” (founded in 1869 as the American Philological Association) will appear on our printed and electronic publications.  We also want to identify and prepare communications for all the audiences (both internal and external) who need to know about our change.

California State University Long Beach’s Classics program would like to announce that we are making our upper division Latin reading classes available to students via the web. These are not “online” classes; they are classes conducted with students in real time. People who are interested in joining our classes would attend class sessions virtually through a web interface, and thus anyone who wants to participate would have to be online during the specific class time.

For Spring semester 2014, we are offering two reading courses, Cicero and Caesar. The semester begins on Tuesday, January 21, and concludes on Friday, May 23, with Spring Break during the week of March 21. Each class meets three hours per week and earns a student 3 semester units. The prerequisite for each class is intermediate Latin; i.e., students will be expected to have facility with noun and verb morphology and an introductory knowledge of Latin grammatical constructions.
