Call for Papers and Posters: MAPPOLA Workshop


Latin Poetry in the Greek East & Greek Poetry in the Latin West, 25-26 February 2021

For this workshop, we invite contributions that examine quantitative and qualitative aspects of Roman poetic production, especially in – but not restricted to! – epigraphic forms, whose language use contradicts the common East/West and Greek/Latin narrative.

We would like to understand the production of Latin poetry in the predominantly Greek-speaking provinces of the east and the production of Greek poetry in the predominantly Latinate west, and we would like to do so for as many regions north, south, and east of the Mediterranean as possible as well as for its relevance to social groups and ethnicities not commonly included in the literary canon.

Proposals should include (i) name and contact details of the proposing party, (ii) title of the proposed contribution (as well as a statement on whether this is intended as a paper, a poster, or either), and (iii) an abstract of no more than 300 words.

Submissions will be accepted in all official languages of the AIEGL (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish) and will be reviewed by the MAPPOLA team.
