Call for Papers – Classics and Popular Culture – CA14

Owing to the widespread interest in the topic at the 2013 Classical Association conference in Reading, I am proposing a panel for the 2014 conference in Nottingham focused on the intersection of classics and popular culture. Papers are sought on topics relating to the deployment and reception of classical material across a wide variety of different media, including (but not limited to) film and television, literature, music, comics, and video games. A particular goal of the panel is to highlight the use of this material as a tool for interdisciplinary cooperation and engagement with non-specialist audiences.

Papers should last no longer than twenty minutes and will be followed by discussion. Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be submitted for consideration by August 16th, 2013. If you would like to be involved, please contact me via email (RWH298 at bham dot ac dot uk) or twitter (@foalpapers).

(Gratitude to Bartolo Natoli and Dr. Jonathan Eaton for models on which to base this CFP, and to Dr Liz Gloyn for her useful advice and proofreading.)
