CFP: Visions of Ancient Cities (Toronto, 5 – 8 January 2017)

Visions of Ancient Cities, sanctuaries and Landscapes in the Literature, and in Art and Coinage
Paper Session Organized by the Friends of Numismatics
SCS Annual Meeting, Toronto, January 5-8, 2017
We invite proposals for papers (15-20 minutes each) presenting evidence of how cities, holy places and mountains were perceived and depicted in the Greek and Roman world in words and images. The aim is an interdisciplinary discussion on how the ancients viewed their cities and places of cult and how they wanted others and foreigners to see and understand them. We hope that a new analysis of some of the descriptions in prose or poetry, combined with an examination of visual representations on reliefs, paintings and coins will bring to light how poleis and rulers advertised themselves and their goods to increase their economy and political power.
In order to participate, please submit an abstract of 300 words to Monique Goodin Monique_Goodin@harvard.edu by March 21st, 2016. Please see the summary of eligibility requirements and related policies for submitting an abstract to the SCS at: https://classicalstudies.org/annual-meeting/types-of-sessions-and-materials-required-proposals#AFG .The abstracts are reviewed anonymously so attach a PDF or WORD document without your name and affiliation to your e-mail message.
