Call for papers

Workshop: The texts of the medical profession in antiquity – genres and
purposes


to be held at the University of Oslo, 16th-18th September 2010
 
 
Organisers: Isabella Andorlini (University of Parma); David Leith
(University College London) and Anastasia Maravela-Solbakk (University
of Oslo)
 
Confirmed speakers: Heinrich Von Staden (Princeton), Vivian Nutton (UCL),
Philip van der Eijk (Newcastle), Laurence Totelin (Cardiff), Rebecca
Flemming (Cambridge), Ann Ellis Hanson (Yale).
 
We are inviting the submission of abstracts for papers (duration: 20-30
min.) to be presented at the workshop ”The texts of the medical
profession in antiquity: genres and purposes” (16-18 September 2010 in Oslo,
Norway). The papers may deal with any text or group of medical texts
from Graeco-Roman antiquity as long as what is in focus are issues
of genre, cross-generic relations and/ or purpose. We are particularly
interested in discussions of generic features and classification as well
as the purpose of medical texts recovered on papyri. We are also keen on
papers exploring the term ”handbook” both within medicine and in
comparison with the use of the term for other prose texts.

Please submit your abstract by March 1st, 2010 to:

anastasia.maravela-solbakk@ifikk.uio.no
