Aristoteles und seine Schüler gelten bekanntlich als Gründer der antiken Biologie. Doch bereits in hellenistischer Zeit nahm das Interesse an empirischer Forschung aristotelico more und an theoretischem biologischem Wissen ab. Diese Tendenz setzte sich in der Kaiserzeit fort, wobei biologische Fachkenntnisse, die auf den Forschungen des Peripatos basierten und mittels im Hellenismus redigierter Auszugssammlungen weitergereicht wurden, in andere literarische Gattungen mit unterschiedlichen Zielsetzungen aufgenommen wurden. Ins Zentrum der Bestrebungen der Autoren rückten oft die Interessen des anvisierten Publikums, so dass Aspekte wie Unterhaltung, Sammlung außergewöhnlicher Phänomene, Allgemeinbildung und philosophische Erbauung die Umfunktionierung des Wissens leiteten. Insofern lässt sich die Bezeichnung ‚biologische Literatur‘ auf eine Vielfalt von Textsorten der Kaiserzeit anwenden, die vom philosophischen Dialog über die Buntschriftstellerei bis hin zum Lehrgedicht und zur christlichen Paränese reichen. Auch im medizinischen Bereich (z.B. bei Galen und in pharmakologischen Traktaten) wurde biologisches Fachwissen intensiv rezipiert.

Die vom Seminar für Klassische Philologie der Universität Marburg (Dr. Diego De Brasi) in Kooperation mit der Universität La Sapienza in Rom (Prof. Dr. Francesco Fronterotta) organisierte interdisziplinäre Tagung will in erster Linie auf die Verquickung von literarischen Formen und philosophischen Positionen in dieser Literatur fokussieren und eine Analyse der Formen und Funktionen biologischer Literatur bzw. biologischen Wissens in der Kaiserzeit bieten.

Die Tagung findet vom 07. bis zum 09.12.2017 statt. Weitere Informationen entnehmen Sie, bitte, dem Programm, das hier zum Download bereitsteht:

Olympiodorus of Alexandria: exegete, teacher, philosopher

Utrecht University (NL), 14-15 December 2017

Sweelinckzaal, Drift 21, room 0.05

Organised by Albert Joosse

 

Olympiodorus of Alexandria, who is often considered to have been the last leading, non-Christian philosopher of classical antiquity, has also been termed ‘the first classicist’ (Tarrant 1997). His place in the history of thought brings into focus issues of doctrinal difference and toleration, of the value of philosophical tradition, and of pedagogical concern for those coming of age in uncertain times. But there is more to Olympiodorus than the times in which he lived. His commentaries on Plato’s First Alcibiades, Gorgias and Phaedo, and on Aristotle’s Categories and Meteorology are now becoming better known and explored. Recent scholarship has also reopened the question of Olympiodorus’ philosophical calibre. There is reason enough, then, to try to present an all-round picture of Olympiodorus, as this conference intends to do.

Couple relationships in antiquity: looking for real-life experiences

Lausanne, 8-9 November 2018

 

 ORGANIZER: Claude-Emmanuelle Centlivres Challet; Anne Bielman Sánchez; Charlotte Golay

 

The topic of the conference is the quest for real-life experiences of ordinary couples in Greco-Roman antiquity. The couples studied are heterosexual adults belonging to lower and middle classes as well as to civic elites. Hellenistic queens and kings, Republican triumvirs, Roman emperors and members of the imperial family will not be considered. The conference hopes to examine male-female relationships in synchronic and diachronic ways, and seeks to glimpse the various ways the real-life experiences of couples is expressed in literary, epigraphical, papyrological, and iconographical sources from the 3rd century BC to the 4th century AD.

 

Keynote speakers : Bonnie MacLachlan (UWO), Amy Richlin (UCLA)

 

Topics include, but are not limited to:

– affective bonds and the dynamic of emotions within the couple

– the distribution of daily public and private chores

– the dynamic of couple relationships depending on socio-economic status – realism and idealisation of couple relationships depending on the genre of the sources

 

This conference is part of a three-year research project (2016-2019) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the aim of which is to study and compare the functioning of ordinary and exceptional couples in Greco-Roman antiquity (https://www.unil.ch/iasa/projetcoupleen). A conference on exceptional couples – in which one of the partners was a head of state – took place on the 9th and 10th of November 2017 in Lausanne.

 

We invite the submission of abstracts of 300 words or less, to be sent by the 22th of January to claude-emmanuelle.centlivreschallet@unil.ch

Multiple Religious Identities – Individuals, Communities, Traditions

16th Annual Conference of the European Association for the Study of Religions (EASR)

17-21 June 2018, Bern

 

As empirical realities, religions are never homogenous. From the multitude of beliefs, objects, feelings, discourses and practices of everyday lived religion, to major historical disputes that have led to the formation of different schools or movements, to conflict-laden divisions at the intersection of religion and politics, an extraordinary variety of contexts and content constitute the ubiquitous constant of religions across centuries and cultures from early civilisations to the immigrant societies of the 21st century, across Europe and beyond. The multiplicity of ways in which individuals form relationships with religious traditions and the plural modes of how religious codes are appropriated add further complexity to this picture.

It comes, therefore, as no surprise that plurality and its more normative pendant, pluralism, have always constituted key issues in religious identity debates: for instance, when religious diversity is set against claims of authenticity and orthodoxy with the discourse on conversion as an example. Plurality and pluralism are also at the core of political controversies, e.g., in discussions on social norms and alleged deviance on religious grounds.

Even though historical and contemporary research has drawn attention to the religious diversity within societies, the conceptualisation and theorisation of these issues remain difficult, given the inner plurality of religions and the multiple constructions of religious identities.

Key concepts such as world religions or syncretism have been the subject of severe criticism. This stemmed from more fundamental questions concerning the homogenising effect of conceptual frameworks that are based, for instance, on a distinction between dominating and minority traditions. Thus, an uncomfortable choice seems necessary: Do we let go our theoretical endeavour in favour of the multitude of individual cases or do we blur the manifold individual and social realities of religions through our generalising concepts? Building on this constructive tension, this conference aims to provide a forum for historical and contemporary research as well as conceptual, methodological and theoretical reflections on the plurality and multiplicity of both religions and religious identities. Topics may include the following:

  • self-conceptions and identity discourses within religious communities and traditions
  • multiple religious belongings in the past and the present
  • conversion and the handling of converts
  • debates on orthodoxy and heterodoxy, conformity and non-conformity
  • missionary activities and religious exclusiveness
  • normative concepts of plurality
  • historical regulation of religious diversity
  • the plurality of ritual practices
  • secularity, secularities and forms of non-belief
  • conceptual and theoretical reflections on terms and models

University of Reading
4-5th May 2018

Keynote speaker: Dr. Chiara O. Tommasi (University of Pisa)

Late Antiquity was once regarded as an age of decadence and barbarisation as well as a ‘marginal’ field of study. Those days are over. Late Antiquity has now its own place in academia and is considered a hot topic by both Classicists and historians of the Early Middle Ages, as well as scholars of religious studies, archaeology, art and philosophy in a fruitful exchange among disciplines.

The study of Late Antiquity involves a wide variety of disciplines. Our PhD Colloquium on Late Antiquity will take place at the University of Reading in May 4-5, 2018. The aim of our Colloquium is to make the most of such diversification by bringing together and achieving synergy among PhD Students from across the UK and abroad working on Late Antiquity.

Each paper (15 min) will be followed by a personalised response from a senior scholar (10 min) assigned by the organisers and a plenary discussion. Each delegate will circulate his or her paper a week in advance to his or her respondent.

Additionally, we will also host a poster session, with a £50 voucher prize for the best poster.

Lastly, the Colloquium will include a visit to the Ure Museum of Classical Archaeology of the University of Reading.

We welcome submissions of papers and/or posters from disciplines including (but not limited to) Greek and Latin Literature, History, Archaeology, Art, Philosophy and Theology:

Option Apapers (15 min)

Send an abstract of your paper (400 words) to readinglateantiquity@gmail.com by 1 November 2017. Please also specify your affiliation.
Option Bposters

Send a brief abstract (200 words) or outline of your poster to readinglateantiquity@gmail.com by 15 November 2017. Please also specify your affiliation.

Please note that, as the event is specifically aimed at PhD students, we can only accept submissions from PhD students. However, Masters students and early career researchers are warmly invited to attend and participate in the debates.

For further enquiries, please contact Lorenzo Livorsi (l.livorsi@pgr.reading.ac.uk), Ilaria Scarponi (ilaria.scarponi@reading.ac.uk ) or Fiona McMeekin (f.p.mcmeekin@pgr.reading.ac. uk).

« Platon et les traditions platoniciennes : traduire, interpréter, commenter »

L’Institut d’histoire de la philosophie (IHP) de l’Université d’Aix-Marseille, en collaboration avec l’Université de Milan (Italie) et le Centre d’études sur la pensée antique « kairos kai logos » d’Aix-en-Provence, organise des journées d’étude sur la question de la traduction et de l’exégèse dans la tradition platonicienne. Ces journées se tiendront à la Faculté de Lettres d’Aix-en-Provence les 14 et 15 octobre 2017. Le colloque a pour intitulé : « Platon et les platonismes : traduire, interpréter, commenter ». Il a pour ambition de développer une réflexion sur la nature, la fonction et la valeur de ces trois procédés d’approche du texte que sont la traduction, l’interprétation et le commentaire et de favoriser une meilleure compréhension des modalités de réappropriation et de transmission de la pensée platonicienne à travers les diverses formes du platonisme, à savoir le platonisme sceptique d’époque hellénistique, le platonisme systématique d’époque impériale, le néoplatonisme et son influence dans les commentateurs anciens d’Aristote, le Platon chrétien de l’Antiquité tardive, sa persistance dans la Scholastique et enfin le néoplatonisme renaissant avec ses résurgences dans la philosophie moderne. Ainsi pour donner à ces échanges une portée encore plus riche, nous avons envisagé de diversifier les perspectives en insérant notre thématique, point nodal du projet, dans une histoire de la pensée qui s’étend de Platon à la Renaissance. En effet, à une époque de questionnement de l’identité de la culture européenne constamment confrontée, transformée et enrichie par d’autres cultures, l’examen d’auteurs tels qu’Isocrate, Philodème, Atticus, Porphyre, Proclus, Calcidius, Ficin et Patrizi, permettra de faire le point sur les apports culturels divers qui ont rendu possible la survivance et la pérennité de la pensée platonicienne à travers les différentes époques et civilisations.

The Archaeology of Mithraism. An international colloquium

To harness the possibilities of archaeological approaches to Mithraism, this colloquium will bring together scholars from across Europe and North America who have excavated or worked closely with the material remains from mithraea. Many of these sites remain un- or only partially published; the opportunity to share and discuss this material is thus doubly important for moving Mithraic studies forward. Alba Iulia, the site of a newly discovered mithraeum (and the first to be scientifically excavated in the province of Dacia), will host the gathering.

 

The key questions we will pose include:

  • What does the archaeology of each site reveal about the practice of Mithraic cult? What did worshippers actually do in (and around) mithraea? How often did they use such sanctuaries?
  • How consistent are the archaeologically attested rites practiced in mithraea through time and space? How do we explain observed similarities and differences?
  • What do these rites reveal about Mithraic communities’ engagements with one another, and about religious networks in the Roman world more broadly?

The conference will take place from October 26-28, 2017, at the Universitatea “1 Decembrie 1918” in Alba Iulia, Romania. October 26-27 will be two full days of conference papers and a poster session featuring the work of graduate students, followed by a day-long archaeological excursion on October 28. Sponsorship is provided by the Muzeul Naţional al Unirii (Alba Iulia), Universitatea “1 Decembrie 1918” (Alba Iulia), Babeş-Bolyai University (Cluj-Napoca), The Institute of Archaeology and the History of Art of the Romanian Academy (Cluj-Napoca Branch), and the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), with the generous financial support of Alba County.
