Greek Matters

Greek Matters

Thursday 19 July 2018, 10.00AM5.00pm

Speaker(s): tbc

Expanding upon recent interest in the influence of Greek antiquity on early modernity, this workshop sets out to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue that explores the reception of texts alongside other encounters with the past: the circulation of images, the collecting of antiquities, archaeology, architecture, epigraphy, etc. From difficulties in printing the Greek alphabet to developments in Neoplatonism, is there a special dialogue between Hellenism and the engagement with matter and material form that emerges for the early modern period? How is ‘Greekness’ imagined and reconstructed across media? We are interested in materiality understood in its broadest sense and welcome proposals on anything from book historical approaches to those considering Hellenism in dialogue with art, architecture, the material world or the philosophy of matter.
