Translation played an important role in the ancient Mediterranean, with its lively interaction of cultures and languages, and translated texts have long been fundamental to the continuing influence of Greece and Rome. Careful consideration of translation in theory and practice is thus essential for an understanding not only of the past but also of our relationship to it as scholars and readers. Moreover, as new generations of classicists are trained, the place of translation in the pedagogy of ancient Greek and Latin is a pressing question, as teachers weigh the benefits and pitfalls of translation in the classroom and consider pedagogical strategies that offer alternatives to translation.


We invite papers that investigate a range of issues surrounding translation and the ancient Mediterranean. Since our definition of translation is broad and inclusive -- we are not limiting ourselves to words and texts -- we also welcome papers that discuss translations across media, such as Roman “copies” of Greek statues. Abstracts can, but need not, belong to the following categories:
- Translation in the ancient Mediterranean
- Translation and the reception of classical cultures
- Translation and the pedagogy of ancient Greek and Latin
- Translation theory and classical studies
We welcome submissions from graduate students representing various disciplines, including classics, comparative literature, linguistics, history, art history, archeology, religion, philosophy and education. We ask that you submit an anonymous abstract of no more than 300 words as an attachment to Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. by December 15th, 2012. Please include in the body of your email your name and university affiliation as well as your phone number and the email address at which you can best be reached. Notifications will be sent out by January 20th, 2013.
