The Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology at the University of Reading is hosting an interdisciplinary conference, 'APHRODITE REVEALED: a goddess disclosed', 8-10th May 2008.

It will include a public lecture by Vinciane Pirenne-Delforge (Li├Ęge), "Flourishing Aphrodite", at 5:30 pm on 8 May 2008.

Full details of the conference, including schedules, abstracts, and booking forms, as well as our poster, may be obtained from the conference website, http://www.reading.ac.uk/ure/Aphrodite. We would appreciate it if potential participants could send booking forms and payment by 3 April 2008 to n.l.aitken AT reading.ac.uk

We particularly bring your attention to the fact that--thanks to generous funding from the Classical Association, the SPHS and the SPRS--we are able to offer a few bursaries (covering conference attendance and up to 2 nights accommodation) to eligible postgraduate students. Please encourage them to contact me directly and as soon as possible.

We would be grateful if you could print out and post the conference poster, http://www.reading.ac.uk/ure/Aphrodite/aphroditeposter.pdf
