Inscriptions and their Uses in Ancient Literature (Manchester, June 25-26, 2009)

INSCRIPTIONS AND THEIR USES IN ANCIENT LITERATURE: A CONFERENCE

DEPARTMENT OF CLASSICS AND ANCIENT HISTORY
UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER
25-26TH JUNE 2009

Registration is now open for this conference, which aims to explore the possibilities which the literary record of ancient inscriptions offer both to those interested in understanding ancient attitudes towards inscriptions and to those interested in exploring the broader relationship (and overlaps) between epigraphical and non-epigraphical modes of expression from a range of literary, historical and epigraphical angles.

Full details, including the conference programme and booking form, are available here: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/classics/eventsnews/inscriptions/ There is a conference fee of £30, to cover tea, coffee and lunch on both days. The deadline for registration is 31st May 2009.

Thanks to the generous support of the Classical Association and the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, we are able to offer four bursaries to postgraduate students wishing to attend the conference. Bursaries will cover the conference fee and up to two nights’ accommodation in Manchester. Those interested in applying should send to polly.low@manchester.ac.uk a brief (c.250 word) statement explaining how attendance at the conference would contribute to their research, and should also ask their supervisor (or other appropriate referee) to send a short statement of support to the same address. The deadline for application for these bursaries is 30th April 2009.
