Violence in Ancient World: Sources, Structure and Interpretation

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 18 mai 2015

 

The Ancient History Commission of the Polish Historical Society and the Department of Ancient History, the University of Maria Curie-Skłodowska, Lublin, Poland, are honoured to invite for a conference in ancient history titled „Violence in Ancient World: Sources, Structure and Interpretation”. A planned, initial date of the conference is early autumn 2015 (late September/early October; the exact conference date will be given after the 18th of May 2015.).

The theme of the conference is by no means invoked by the current international situation for the primary aim of the symposium is not a comparative study since war has never been the only aspect of violence. Bridging the gaps can, however, turn out to be inspiring in the search for methodological paradigms, novel research perspectives, original context and a certain structural inquiries. For these reasons we do not try to define the phenomenon of violence in any way, opening for it every kind of space, in which it is possible to notice all sorts of forms of its expression and presence. It would be in vain to list them all, although it is worth remembering about the symbolic one, non-institutionalised, somewhat concealed and rhetorical, yet creating some of its patterns and attitudes towards them. It would be impossible to enumerate all its tools, but it is worth mentioning, for instance, rumours, invective, accusation and a literal staging of violence as part of public games. Each of these forms used specific media, starting from the chains for slaves, through the swords, and ending with philosophical reflections. It was associated with suffering, tyranny, enslavement and martyrdom. Its scale was being adjusted by laws, but the attitude towards it was also determined by ethics and morality. Its excess was terrifying (the Assyrians, Etruscans), but its absence and all kinds of antitheses (clementia Caesaris) was worrying and inspiring.

LITERARISCHE FORM. GESCHICHTE UND KULTUR ÄSTHETISCHER MODELLBILDUNG
LITERARY FORM. HISTORY AND CULTURE OF AESTHETIC MODELING
LA FORME LITTÉRAIRE. L'HISTOIRE ET LA CULTURE DE LA MODÉLISATION ESTHÉTIQUE

Münster, Germany, 5 – 7 October 2015

THE RETURN OF FORM. The growing interest in the idea of form that recently emerged in History of Science, Literature and Media Studies seems to point to an increasing need: to reassess the productivity of literature as such. This novel ‘consciousness of form' is aiming at two counter-trends in academic research: the expansion of the Literary in the fields of discourse history and its reduction to a matter of narration. The conference will build upon the recent interest in form and modeling; it will explore both the poetics and the history of form (Burdorf) in case studies that cover a wide range of topics – in literary history as well as with regard to other discourses and academic fields. It will trace the functions of poetic form-processing (genesis, transfer and transformation), it will investigate formalization (e.g. in the concept of ‘generic knowledge'), it will address cultures and milieus of form (like intermediary forms between the Classic and the Popular) together with their strategies and policies of form. The conference distinguishes between the concept of poetic form and the competing notions (such as signature, contour, gestalt, structure, system). It also covers well-established binaries (like content vs. form, form vs. matter, chaos vs. form) as well as their dynamic counterparts (such as morphology or ‘inner form').
FORM AND MODEL. A central issue of the conference will be the way in which poetic modeling and form-processing constitute each other in producing a specific work of art. Heuristically, poetic form may be related to three types of modeling: conceptual modeling (the level of judgement), semiotic and material modeling (the level of representation/device) and generic modeling (the level of classification/convention/norm). Aiming to sketch a history of literary forms (and thus a ‘history of literary modeling') the conference will highlight three major fields of research: I. Theory of Form as a poetics of form (history of concepts), II. Form-Processing as a dynamics of the production of signs, texts and genres (history of devices) III. Cultures of Form as a practice of cultural and medial mediation of forms (history of transfers).

Colloquia Orphica VII

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 15 juin  2015

 

The Department of Greek Studies and the Institute of Classical Studies at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin are pleased to invite you to participate in the international conference 'Colloquia Orphica VII' devoted to the problems related to Orphic religion. The conference will take place from the 7nd (supper) to the 10th (breakfast) of October 2015 in Nieborow, Poland.

This will be already the seventh meeting organized by our Institute. The organization of this symposium is an answer to an increasing interest in the subject of Orphism along with its various aspects and manifestations in many areas of ancient culture, especially in light of the recent findings in the field of papyrology. Our intention is to enable the specialists in different fields to meet and discuss over these fascinating issues, so papers concerning every possible aspect of Orphism will be welcome.
