International Society for the Classical Tradition, 4th Meeting
Tübingen, July/August 1998


- - - - - - - - CALL FOR PAPERS FOURTH MEETING OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE CLASSICAL TRADITION (ISCT) University of Tübingen (Germany) July 29 - August 2, 1998
Papers are invited on all aspects of the transmission, reception, and impact of Graeco-Roman antiquity on other cultures and later periods, from the ancient world itself to the present time. Conference languages will be English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. The style of the Fourth Meeting will be similar to that of the First, Second, and Third Meetings (Boston University, March 1991; University of Tübingen, August 1992; and Boston University, March 1995; program brochures of the Third Meeting are available upon request). Presentations of 20, 30, or (in a few cases) 40 minutes will be arranged in thematic sections and panels. This time the overall program will combine paper sequences, including short discussion periods, with seminar style sessions. While most papers will be presented in several parallel sections, there will also be a few plenary and semi-plenary lectures. Proposals for thematic panels, seminars, or larger units are welcome. Abstracts of papers (not more than 25 lines, one-and-a-half-spaced) and proposals for panels etc., as well as any suggestions and inquiries (including about the ISCT and the Society's quarterly International Journal of the Classical Tradition) should be sent to the organizers at Boston University as early as possible. The deadline for submission of abstracts and proposals is December 15, 1997. Presenters will be notified on behalf of the Program Committee by January 16, 1998. A preliminary program will be available by February 20, the definitive program by May 1, 1998. A volume of copies of revised abstracts will be distributed for a fee at the beginning of the Meeting. There will be a registration fee of $50 (or DM 80) due from all presenters and other attendants. We encourage communication by either mail or fax or e-mail to: Profs.
