Narrative and Argument in Greco-Roman Antiquity

Narrative and Argument in Greco-Roman Antiquity

Description

Event Time: Thursday 4 July and Friday 5 July 2024, 9am to 5pm

This two-day conference seeks to re-investigate the relationship between narrative and argument in ancient literature (broadly defined). Amidst strong trends in both rhetorical and narratological analysis, observations about the interplay between narratological structures and rhetorical methods of persuasion have tended to be at the margins of classical scholarship; but there are indications of a shift towards the foreground. To explore and consolidate these trends, our conference brings together scholars interested in the interaction of political, literary, narratological, and cultural analysis of ancient literature to retrace the narrative mechanisms and discourses shaping the (im)balance between ideology, argument, and narration in ancient texts.
