«Η Τραγωδία και η Ιδέα του Μοντερνισμού»

Το Τμήμα των Ελληνικών και Λατινικών Σπουδών του σπουδαίου Πανεπιστημιακού Ιδρύματος του Λονδίνου, με την επωνυμία University College London (Gordon House, 29 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PP), οργανώνει για σήμερα Συνέδριο, με τον παραπάνω τίτλο.

Υπεύθυνοι του Συνεδρίου είναι: Joshua Billings (Oxford), Miriam Leonard (UCL). Ομιλητές δε, θα είναι οι εξής: Josh Billings (Oxford), Katie Fleming (Queen Mary, UL), Simon Goldhill (Cambridge), Rüdiger Görner (Queen Mary, UL), Constanze Güthenke (Princeton), Edith Hall (Royal Holloway, UL), Katherine Ibbett (UCL), Miriam Leonard (UCL), Michael Lurie (Edinburgh), Jim Porter (UC, Irvine) και Martin Ruehl (Cambridge).

Η φιλοσοφία και ο σκοπός του Συνεδρίου έχουν ως εξής:

Around 1800, particularly in Germany, the question of tragedy becomes linked to modernity’s self-definition. Within this tradition, Greek tragedy becomes a privileged medium for grappling with the antiquity of the ancient and the modernity of the modern - an issue which will continue to exercise the later philosophies of Nietzsche, Freud and Heidegger. Hegel’s, Hölderlin’s, and Nietzsche’s writings about tragedy have arguably had a more profound influence on the modern understanding of the genre than any individual work of classical scholarship or any single theatrical performance, but their writings have failed to gain the attention of scholars of tragedy. By exploring the interplay between tragedy and modernity, the conference aims to understand and question the place of ancient tragedy today.
