ἅπαντα τῷ πλουτεῖν γὰρ ἐσθ' ὑπήκοα [Aristoph. Wealth 146]
Across the world today there is much discourse around relative wealth and poverty, particularly relating to issues of privilege, class and inequality. Studies on wealth and poverty in antiquity are often centred on the transitional period towards Christianity, but Graeco-Roman antiquity as a whole has much to offer in terms of material for study. Although we are to some extent hampered by the fact that ancient literature, and even material remains, favour the views and lives of the wealthy, there are still many fruitful areas for exploration:
- Representations of poverty and wealth in literature and art
In addition to the main theme of the conference, we also welcome individual or panel proposals on all other aspects of the Classical World and Classical Reception.
The deadline for proposals has been extended to 30 July 2017. Please submit a paper title, an abstract (approximately 300 words) and author affiliation to either:
Dr Liana Lamprecht - firstname.lastname@example.org or
