The Novel Echoes and Retracing Connections research groups invite you to a one-day hybrid workshop.

The workshop focuses on the reception of ancient and late antique narratives across languages and cultures in the Middle Ages and brings together participants from Latin, Greek, Middle Eastern, Iranian, and Georgian studies.

Organisers: Mara Nicosia, Koen De Temmerman, Ingela Nilsson (Uppsala University)

The workshop is funded both by the European Research Council through the Novel Echoes project hosted at Ghent University and by the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond through the “Retracing Connections: Byzantine Storyworlds in Greek, Arabic, Georgian, and Old Slavonic (c. 950 – c. 1100)” programme hosted at Uppsala University.

The workshop will be streamed online via Microsoft Teams.

Please register before 25 January.
