'The world in one city'


From 27 to 30 March 2008, the University of Liverpool is hosting the
Classical Association annual conference. 2008 is also the year that
Liverpool is European Capital of Culture, making the city an exciting
destination for visitors, old and new. Around 2 million people from around
the globe are expected to join the year-long celebrations, enjoying world-
class festivals of music, dance, theatre, and art alongside the city’s long-
standing attractions: the UNESCO world-heritage waterfront, the Tate and
Williamson galleries of contemporary and pre-Raphaelite art, and the
excellent National Museums Liverpool.

In keeping with one of the themes of Liverpool 2008, The World in One City,
the conference will bring together scholars from diverse countries and
traditions to share their research on an international stage and bring a
classical component to the cultural proceedings. With panellists from
Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australasia already confirmed
through our earlier call for panels, we would like now to invite proposals
for individual papers to complete the conference programme. We are
particularly looking to fill spaces on a panel dedicated to Greek and Roman
sport, but otherwise are happy to receive proposals relating to any aspect
of the Classical World. Papers should be 20 minutes long.
