Reception of the Homeric Hymns in Latin and Later Greek Literature

University of Waterloo, Ontario Canada, Aug. 8–11, 2013

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 20 août 2012

 

 

The significance of early hexameter hymns and their narratives for Latin and later Greek literature has been appreciated occasionally in previous scholarship (A. Barchiesi 'Venus' Masterplot: Ovid and the Homeric Hymns' 1999 issued a call for future work on the Hymns' influence on Ovid, which has yet to be fully heeded; cf. also S. Hinds The Metamorphosis of Persephone 1987). But there has been no concentrated effort to bring together a fuller picture of the later layers of their reception. We invite proposals for papers on the reception of the Homeric Hymns (and related hexameter texts: e.g. cosmologies and philosophical texts) in Latin and later Greek literature. In Greek the focus will be on reception in Hellenistic, Imperial and Late Antique texts, with the exception of primary reception in Callimachus, Theocritus, and Apollonius, as their corpora have already been well treated in this respect. Reception will be defined broadly in the volume (linguistic or thematic allusion, intertextuality, adaptation of the form, performance, reception in visual arts etc.).


The first stage of this project will consist of a workshop held at the University of Waterloo, in Ontario Canada (Aug. 8-11, 2013). The workshop will include about 20 participants, each of whom will present the first draft of a paper in progress for discussion by the group. The second stage of the project will be the publication of these papers in a volume. Participants would therefore be asked to prepare their conference presentations as for publication, which can then be refined through discussion at the workshop. We would seek final versions of the papers, whose length should be approximately 8,000 – 10,000 words, by the end of December 2013.
