Intergenerational. Interdisciplinary. International Conference
28-29-30 September 2017 @ Bonn, Germany
what, why & how
we do re-member
Come then, and let us pass a leisure hour in storytelling,
and our story shall be the education of our heroes.
Plato, Republic, Book II
I enquire now as to the genesis of a philologist and assert the following:
1. A young man cannot possibly know what Greeks and Romans are.
2. He does not know whether he is suited for finding out about them.
Nietzsche, Unzeitgemässe Betrachtungen
To remember is to deviate from the retrospective quest for any possible beginning, and critically focus on the remediated artefact within its new context. Apart from re-membering classical antiquity though, we aim at the establishment of a hub for students, researchers, artists, and anyone interested in the fascinating world of classical antiquities that keeps haunting our post-modernities in the most stunning ways.
Let this conference inaugurate a hub of people, networks, projects, ideas, who love to… remember and/or forget our most mythical pasts (sic)!
Penelope Kolovou & Efstathia Athanasopoulou
