Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck: ‘The Ancient Greek Book Epigram in Context’ (online workshop)

Online Workshop ‘The Ancient Greek Book Epigram in Context’

Innsbruck, 25th – 26th June 2021 (via Zoom)


We are happy to announce that the workshop ‘The Ancient Greek Book Epigram in Context’ will take place on 25th – 26th June 2021 via Zoom. The workshop aims at contextualising the role of book epigrams as paratexts on both a synchronic and a diachronic level. Full programme and joining details are available here.

The workshop is part of the project ‘The Ancient Greek Book Epigram’, funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), which is currently pursuing the first systematic examination of the extant ancient Greek book epigrams. It focuses on the ‘literary’ book epigram and it particularly investigates the role of these texts as vehicles for literary criticism and metapoetic discussion.
