Conference on Classical Controversies

Leiden University and the National Museum of Antiquities, in cooperation with the OIKOS research group Classical receptions and traditions, are happy to invite you to the online conference Classical Controversies.

Dates en times:
  • Wednesday 11 November 2020: 16.00-18.30
  • Thursday 12 November 2020: 14.00-17.15
  • Friday 13 November 2020: 14.00-18.00
This conference aims to contribute to our notions of the different ways elements of Graeco-Roman antiquity (construed in a broad sense of the word) are perceived and employed towards a particular end in most recent 21st century discourse. Its focus will be on reception by museums, in politics, and in more popular culture. This reveals the needs of our own society: what kinds of narratives about antiquity do we create for ourselves at this moment in time, and for which reasons? What do we do with antiquity? And how do these narratives use, and reflect on, earlier historical chains of reception?
