This Saturday morning (April 16), I will be presenting on a panel called “Intertextuality as Time Travel” with comparatist/classicist Leon Grek. I warmly welcome anyone in the New York, New Jersey, or Philadelphia area to come.
Here’s a description of the whole conference, organized by my colleague Mercedes Valmisa.
The Princeton Early Text Cultures Workshop will bring together 11 graduate students from the USA and the UK, specialists in Early China, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Ancient Rome and Greece, to discuss similarities and differences in the patterns of textual formation and textual practices in early civilizations. These patterns define the social role of texts, the composition of their audience, the repertoire of text types, and the paths towards the development of creative literature.
When: April 16 and 17, 2016
Where: 202 Jones Hall, Princeton University
Please see the flyer and schedule in attachment. All events are free and open to the public.
