The 15th conference of the Fédération internationale des associations d'études classiques
The 15th conference of the Fédération internationale des associations d'études classiques will take place in conjunction with the 2019 Classical Association annual conference on 4th-8th July 2019 in the Institute of Education (UCL) in London. FIEC business meetings will take place on 4th July, and the conference proper will begin on 5th July.
We expect hundreds of classicists from all over the world and at any stage in their career to attend, to hear plenary lectures from international leaders in our field, to present and hear papers, to participate in debates and discussions and to take part in cultural activities and workshops.
The Programme Committee is now inviting proposals for panels and posters.
Each panel will be of 2 hours duration. We anticipate that many panels will consist of 4 short papers united by a common theme. We also invite proposals for panels and workshops in different formats, so long as they fit within a 2 hour block to faciltate timetabling.
The Programme Committee aims to select a range of panels that reflects the breadth of traditional and non-traditional classics, including but not limited to Greek and Latin literatures of all periods, linguistics, ancient history in its widest sense, philosophy and religion, art and archaeology, Neo-Latin and Byzantine studies, and the past and current reception of the classics in all media and in different cultures and traditions. We also welcome panels drawing on comparative and interdisciplinary studies. We anticipate there will be panels discussing national traditions in classical research and that some panels will deal with non-Greek peoples such as Etruscans, Persians and Phoenicians. We especially encourage panels dealing with pedagogy and outreach.
Our principle criterion of selection will be academic quality. But we are also keen to create a programme that reflects the full variety of our subject and the diversity of those who study and teach it.
