Roman Cultural Memory, Sao Paulo, Brazil 7th-9th  March 2018

A series of three conferences will explore the impact of the bourgeoning field of memory studies on the study of Latin Literature and Culture.

The first conference at King’s College London (November 2016) has focused on cultural memory in the Roman Republic.

The second conference at Paris (June 2017) will look at Augustan cultural memory and the third conference in Sao Paulo (March 2018) will concentrate on cultural memory under the Roman Empire.

We are inviting submissions of abstracts for the third session in Sao Paulo, Brazil (7th – 9th March 2018). Papers will focus on cultural memory under the Roman Empire (i.e. post-Augustan)
