Call for papers—deadline February 15th, 2009

The conference will explore two major aspects of the visual in Greek “lyric” (covering melic—both monodic and choral—iambic, and elegiac poetry). We invite papers on “lyric” as represented and visualized in Greek painting or sculpture, and on visual aspects of performance as inscribed and embodied in the poems themselves.

Questions to be discussed include:

  • To what extent can one assume that a visually represented performance is non-epic or non-dramatic?
  • What social and cultural implications arise from visual representations of “lyric”?
  • How do ancient painting and sculpture visualize the media of lyric poetry-- that is, song, instrumental music and dance?
  • How do melic, iambic and elegiac poems stimulate vision in either its actual or imaginary aspects?
  • Are visual arts deliberately evoked by “lyric” poems and why?

A small number of papers raising questions about later representations of Greek lyric poetry (for instance, in Victorian England) will also be welcome.

  • Abstracts of ca. 250 words should be sent by February 15th, 2009 as Word or Pdf attachments to: Caroline Trieschnigg.
  • The cost of the speakers’ lodging (for the nights of July 16, 17, 18, 19) and most meals will be covered by the sponsors of the conference.

This conference is sponsored by Stanford University, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and Radboud University Nijmegen.
