Online international conference on Performance in Late Antiquity and Byzantium

March 31, 2021

CHS Greece supports this online international conference that will take place on April 19–24, 2021, co-organized by the Institute of Historical Research of the National Hellenic Research Foundation, Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies in the USA, the American College of Greece, and the Global Knowledge Academics.

Performance and performativity represent an aspect of pre-modern Greek literature and culture that has not yet received sufficient attention. The conference will focus on performativity in its broadest sense across genres in an attempt to trace its function in various contexts. The goal of the conference is to contribute to the growing field of performance studies and their application in the fields of Late Antiquity and Byzantium with new material and perspectives and to offer scholars working on performance and performativity the possibility for a lively dialogue on aspects related to this exciting topic.

Attendance is free to all. For more information about the program and registration options, you can visit the conference's page on the Global Knowledge Academics website.
