CFP: Emotion, Status, Power in Late Antiquity

On the occasion of the retirement of Dr Ronald Newbold, Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Adelaide, a conference will be held 8-9 December 2008 at the University of Adelaide (South Australia) to celebrate his long and fruitful career as a teacher and researcher.

The conference/colloquium will focus on emotions, status and power in antiquity. All papers dealing with the topics of emotions, status and power in literature, history and archaeology of Greece and Rome are welcome, but papers on late antiquity (c. 300-700 CE) and authors such as Ammianus Marcellinus, Nonnus and Gregory of Tours are especially encouraged as these represent a significant focus of Dr. Newbold’s research. Selected papers from the conference will be published in the planned proceedings. Abstracts (ca. 150-200 words) are now accepted up until the 15th of October 2008.

Keynote speaker will be Prof. Thomas S. Burns of Emory University (USA).
