INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE RECEPTION OF ANCIENT GREEK TRAGIC MYTH IN MODERN GREEK POETRY AND THEATRE OF THE 2OTH AND 21ST CENTURIES

21-22 December 2014

VENUE: Holiday Inn, 70 Rigenis Street, Nicosia, Cyprus

REGISTRATION IS FREE BUT REQUIRED. PLEASE VISIT THE “EUMENIDES” WEBSITE AT: http://eumenides.ouc.ac.cy/events/conference-programme

The conference is organised by the “Eumenides” Project, which is funded by the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation and is hosted by the Open University of Cyprus at eumenides.ouc.ac.cy. The aim of the Project is to catalogue and analyse the multifarious ways in which ancient Greek tragedy and tragic myth have been adapted, reinterpreted, revised, or re-imagined in modern Greek poetry and theatre from the late 19th century to the present day. In particular, the project explores the various ways in which Greek tragedy has been a crucial factor in the formation of a poetics and a politics of modern Greek national and cultural identity. The papers of the conference seek to address these issues by looking at a wide range of poets and playwrights including, among others, Cavafy, Seferis, Ritsos, Demetriades, Charalambides, Matesis, and Pontikas.
