The year 2012 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of Christiane Sourvinou-Inwood. During these passing years her clear and unmistakable scholarly voice has not been silenced but thanks to the editorial work of loyal friends it has continued – and will continue – to enrich our critical reflection and debate on Greek religion with fresh material and ideas. All of her work, including that published posthumously, displays the quality that most particularly characterized Christiane: her ability to apply rigorous methodology and to combine literature, history and archaeology to interpret Greek life and culture.

As a tribute to Christiane Sourvinou-Inwood’s long-lasting achievement and on-going contribution to scholarship, the Classics Division of the Department of Philology of the University of Crete will host a conference in her memory in September 2012 (22-24) which will aim to bring together scholars working in various areas who are familiar with Sourvinou-Inwood’s ideas to discuss important religious aspects of literary, visual and historical material that illuminate Greek culture.

There will be no registration fee for attendance, but those who wish to attend the conference are strongly encouraged to register, so as to ensure that there will be sufficient conference material for everybody. If you wish to attend, please register electronically (submitting simply name, affiliation and email address) by September 20, 2012 (extension of registration procedure).
