Appel à contributions

 

First International Conference on Hermeneutics of Symbol, Myth and “Modernity of antiquity” in Italian literature and the Arts from the Renaissance up to the present day (Milan, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, 1-2 December 2015).

Proposals need to analyze myth and symbols from the perspective of the “modernity of antiquity”. This perspective requires to take into account the available philological and historical resources and to focus on the identification of ancient literary and religious sources of myth and mythological symbol related to forms of archaic, pre-Homeric, non-Olympic or ancient mystery pagan religions, both Mediterranean and non Mediterranean, but neither Homeric nor Olympic. The purpose to device new strategies for deciphering the deepest meaning, namely the scriptio inferior, of literary and art works conceived from the perspective of the “modernity of antiquity” and with a multilayered semantic structure.
The conference organizers will not take into consideration proposals which consider myth and symbol in general terms from a psychological, psychoanalytical, sociological, ethnological or anthropological perspective, which consider myth merely in the perspective of “traditional narrative”, or which analyze themes and figures of Homeric-Olympic mythology.
