17th ANNUAL JOINT POSTGRADUATE SYMPOSIUM ON ANCIENT DRAMA
Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 JUNE 2017:
‘Movement and limits in the theory and practice of ancient drama’
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 17th Annual APGRD / Royal Holloway, University of London Joint Postgraduate Symposium on the Performance of Ancient Drama will take place on Monday 26 June (at the Ioannou Centre, University of Oxford) and Tuesday 27 June (at Royal Holloway, Egham). This year’s theme will be: ‘movement and limits in the theory and practice of ancient drama.’ Abstracts of papers should be sent by 31 March 2017 to postgradsymp at classics.ox.ac.uk (please include details of your current course of study, supervisor and academic institution).
ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
This annual Symposium focuses on the reception of Greek and Roman tragedy and comedy, exploring the afterlife of these ancient dramatic texts through re-workings by both writers and practitioners across all genres and periods. This year’s theme is a timely response to the current surge of scholarly interest in mass geopolitical movement and national boundaries, in corporeality and formal conventions. Speakers from a number of countries will give papers on the reception of Greek and Roman drama. This year’s guest respondent will be Dr Helen Slaney (Roehampton University). Among those present at this year’s symposium will be Prof. Fiona Macintosh and Prof. Oliver Taplin. The first day of the symposium will include a dance performance by Marie-Louise Crawley (APGRD Artist in Residence January - June 2017) at the Ashmolean Museum.
Postgraduates from around the world working on the reception of Greek and Roman drama are welcome to participate, as are those who have completed a doctorate but not yet taken up a post. The symposium is open to speakers from different disciplines, including researchers in the fields of Classics, modern languages and literature, and theatre and performance studies.
Practitioners are welcome to contribute their personal experience of working on ancient drama. Papers may also include demonstrations. Undergraduates are very welcome to attend.
Those who wish to offer a short paper (20 mins) or performance presentation on ‘movement and limits in the theory and practice of ancient drama’ are invited to send an abstract of up to 200 words outlining the proposed subject of their discussion to postgradsymp at classics.ox.ac.uk<mailto:postgradsymp at classics.ox.ac.uk> by FRIDAY 31 MARCH 2017 AT THE LATEST (please include details of your current course of study, supervisor and academic institution).
There will be no registration fee. Some travel bursaries will be available this year - please indicate if you would like to be considered for one of these.

Subject: Invitation | Professor Paul Arthur on ŒData-Rich Research in the Arts and Humanities¹, at the University of Sydney, 31 March 2017
Sydney Digital Humanities:
Data-Rich Research in the Arts and Humanities
Professor Paul Arthur, Chair in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences at Edith Cowan University
Co-presented with Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group <http://sydney.edu.au/intellectual-history/sdh/index.shtml> in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Over the past two decades, the digital revolution has had a major impact on research, creativity, and knowledge production in all disciplines from the humanities to the sciences. Established ways of working and traditional disciplinary divisions have needed to be rethought to support new digital methods and to enable the shift from individual to collective and collaborative authorship and toward multimodal and multimedia textuality.
In the humanities, such developments have helped to alter the dominant research culture over a relatively short period. New communities of researchers and practitioners are emerging, made up not only of experts in these disciplines but also computer scientists, communication professionals, business experts and policymakers, a mix that was uncommon even a decade ago.
With increased collaboration, novel research topics are being formulated, and a new language, used by a new generation of scholars, is evolving. The increasing capacity for interoperability and aggregation is supporting this trend, as is the ever-expanding toolkit of digital devices, programs, and applications that make it easy for people to converse and share ideas and information regardless of physical location.
Yet, there are also challenges to address. The same technologies that are supporting collaborative data-driven research practices are being deeply integrated into everyday communications, leading to serious concerns over privacy and digital identity. This talk reflects on these broad shifts in research and in society, in different settings - local, national and international - with a focus on the Australasian context.
About the speaker:
Professor Paul Arthur is Chair in Digital Humanities and Social Sciences at Edith Cowan University. He was Australia’s first professor in digital humanities (Western Sydney University 2013–16), the founding president of the Australasian Association for Digital Humanities (2011–15), and is currently co-chair of centerNet (the worldwide network of digital humanities research centres). Recent publications include Advancing Digital Humanities: Research, Methods, Theories (2014, ed. with Katherine Bode).
