Event description

Description

The Network for the Interface of Classics and Politics is organising a conference for Friday 13 September 2019 at the University of Liverpool.

The organisers invite proposals for papers that examine the relevance of ancient rhetorical devices and strategies upon contemporary society, broadly defined. Proposals can focus on any element of the conference aims that speak at least one of the following themes:

  1. Classical Rhetoric and Contemporary Society
  2. Language of Leadership
  3. Linguistics and Ideologies in Political Parties
  4. Sub-National, National, and International Identities
  5. Constitutional and Institutional Language

To submit your proposal you are requested to submit a 500 words max abstract that outlines how your paper makes use of ancient rhetorical concepts in its examination of contemporary society.

Each presentation should aim to be approximately 20 minutes long and can be proposals at any stage of development including work in progress, research plans, interim, or concluding findings.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is August 15th.

You are requested to email your abstract to Dr Andrew S. Crines.

We are especially keen to welcome abstracts from women, BAME, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented groups.

For questions, please contact the conference organisers.

The aim of the conference is to develop papers into a series of scholarly 8k word chapters for publication in 2020.

To join our mailing list please contact the Network Directors.

Dr Andrew S. Crines, Prof Bruce Gibson, and Dr David Jeffery
