Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, course


This workshop will take place in St Andrews, and forms part of a BA/Leverhulme funded research project with the same title. The workshop will bring a range of scholars together to share ideas about the project's focus and direction and to identify important areas of inquiry.

This workshop will bring together a range of scholars to exchange ideas about the project’s scope and agenda and to identify particularly important lines of inquiry. Participants will be encouraged to consider some preliminary themes, including: • trends in literary production in the period • ideas about and images of contemporary literary life • overlaps between literary and other intellectual and cultural activities • boundaries and interactions between ‘literary’ and ‘non-literary’ writing • interaction between Roman and Greek/non-Roman writers • the impact of social and political developments on literary output and literary life • contrasts and continuity between Flavian, Nervan, Trajanic and Hadrianic literary activity
