Session at the Northeast Modern Languages Association 51st Annual Convention
For their 2019 convention, the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) added Classics as a secondary area of inquiry under Comparative Literature. This will be the second year with Classics on the program! We had quite a number of panels on Classics last year, and expect similar numbers this year. NeMLA is a wonderful, vibrant, and friendly conference. Please consider submitting an abstract for a panel on Mythology from Modernity to the Post-Modern: Regional and Global Perspectives for the 51st annual convention to be held in Boston, MA March 5-8, 2020.
This panel investigates the role that Greco-Roman mythology has played in shaping and reflecting Modernity and post-Modern sensibilities. A central part of Greco-Roman studies, myth continues in a long reception history through to contemporary times. We seek papers that examine the topic through literature, philosophy, art (broadly defined), and digital media, as well as papers that approach the topic through regional or global comparative perspectives, including the reception of Greco-Roman myth in the colonial and post-colonial world.
All abstracts (and eventual papers) should have in mind the general NeMLA audience and should not be aimed solely at classicists. All papers should be presented in English.
