Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, The conference intends to bring together scholars and translators to explore the dynamic processes of selection, tension, and negotiation that have been integral to the making and interpreting of Classical canon with a special focus on Ovid. The challenges of translating Ovid into Chinese will be discussed against this general background. As such, it serves as an opportunity not only to pay tribute to Ovid but also to promote cross-cultural conversations about the globalization of the Greco-Roman Classics.
Abstract submissions will be evaluated by a board of seven referees, whose names are listed in the CfP, and the results will be announced by June 1, Remember me on this computer. Enter the email address you signed up with and we'll email you a reset link.
This book explores the presence of slaves and slavery in Roman literature and asks particularly what the free imagination made of the experience of living with slaves, beings who both were and were not fellow humans. As a shadow humanity, slaves furnished the free with other selves and imaginative alibis as well as mediators between and substitutes for their peers. As presences that witnessed their owners' most unguarded moments they possessed a knowledge that was the object of both curiosity and anxiety.
The book discusses not only the ideological relations of Roman literature to the institution of slavery, but also the ways in which slavery provided a metaphor for a range of other relationships and experiences, and in particular for literature itself.
