Anger in the Ancient World
Graduate Student Conference
University of Western Ontario
March 9-10, 2007

Keynote Speaker: Prof. David Konstan, Brown University

Call for Papers

Anger as a primal emotion appears in many facets of Classical culture. We see it reflected in a variety of texts, fiction and nonfiction, poetry and prose, as well as in art and architecture. From a study of Achilles' rage to Dido's fury and beyond, we can discover much about the ancient world and about ourselves.

We invite graduate students to submit papers to examine diverse aspects of anger in the ancient world. Topics may be drawn from, but are not limited to: literary criticism, ancient philosophy, gender studies, Greek and Latin linguistics, ritual, religion, art and archeology.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words by November 30, 2006 to:
