The Department of Greek and Latin, UCL in collaboration with the RHUL Centre for Oratory and Rhetoric (COR) and the Institute of Classical Studies.
Cicero Awaydays offer an informal forum for presenting papers (whether fully-fledged ones or work in progress) on any aspect of Cicero’s life and works. The first five editions were held, at two-year intervals, in Scottish universities; the last one was hosted by Classics at Newcastle University; this year it has moved to the south of the country.
Everyone with an interest in matters Ciceronian is very welcome to attend. There is no conference fee (and lunch and refreshments will be provided), but it would be helpful if anyone planning to attend could let the organizers know by 15 May 2012 (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
