|The Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, DC, the Network for the Study of the Archaic and Classical Greek Song, and CHS Greece invite you to attend Performing Texts, an international virtual conference to be held from June 30 through July 4, 2021.
This conference aims to open what we hope will be an expansive, mutually enriching dialogue between performance-based approaches to Greek lyric and the current (re)turn to its more literary and aesthetic aspects and effects.
It will be divided in 10 sessions with 46 speakers and discussants from all over the world (US, Greece, Brazil, Italy, UK, Germany, etc). Two 90-minute virtual sessions will be featured each day over Harvard Zoom (zoom webinar), starting at 6pm EET/11am EDT. During the sessions, speakers will present 10-minute overviews of their papers, which will be circulated to participants before the conference, followed by brief discussion moderated by the discussants of the conference.
All are welcome to participate. Registration is free and open now through June 20.
