University of Manchester, 26-27 June 2008

Submission of abstracts on Suetonius is invited for a conference to be held at
the University of Manchester, 26-27 June 2008. Provisionally confirmed speakers

Rhiannon Ash (Oxford)
Erik Gunderson (Toronto)
John Henderson (Cambridge)
Donna Hurley (New York)
Tim Parkin (Manchester)
Jeff Tatum (Sydney)
Peter Wiseman (Exeter)
Ruth Morello (Manchester)
Roy Gibson (Manchester)

Papers may be on any aspect of the lost or surviving works of Suetonius, his
context or influence; but we are particularly seeking papers of a broadly
literary or cultural bent which seek to understand Suetonius and his text,
either directly or through his inheritors. The aim of the conference is to
galvanize and revitalize study of this fascinating early imperial author.

Abstracts should be no longer than one side of A4 and should be sent to either
of the conference organisers by 31 January 2008.

For further information, do not hesitate to contact us.

three have been published as Re-imagining Pliny the Younger (Arethusa 36.2,
2003); The Art of Love: Bimillennial Essays on Ovid's Ars Amatoria and
Remedia Amoris (OUP, 2006); and Ancient Letters: Classical and Late Antique
Epistolography (OUP, 2007). A fourth - Pliny the Elder: Themes and Contexts
- is in preparation for publication with Brill in late 2008. For further
