Images of Greece, ASECS (Montreal, 30 Mar-2Apr 06)

Christoph Schmaelzle

American Association for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS)

PANEL: “Images of Greece” (German Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies)

Thirty-seventh Annual Meeting
Montreal, Quebec
Fairmont - The Queen Elizabeth
March 30 - April 2, 2006

Deadline: 15. Sept, 2005

The concept of classical antiquity encompasses a changing canon of ideas and
examples. During the
eighteenth century it tends to be identified with Greek culture. But there are
concurrent ideas of
classical Greece, nourished by different sources. On the one hand there’s the
tradition of
antiquarianism, academic art, the grand tour. On the other there’s a new focus
on empirical
evidence, leading to modern Greek archaeology. In the early nineteenth century
the more mediated,
traditional approach comes to an end. The panel invites proposals that explore
the relations between
the creative tradition of classicism and the history of classical scholarship.
Approaches might
focus on aesthetics and history of the arts.

Proposals for papers should be sent directly to the seminar chairs no later
than 15 September 2005.
Please include your telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address. You should
also let the session
chair know of any anticipated audio-visual needs. Seminar chairs will have
until 30 September to
send the names of participants, their e-mail addresses, titles of their papers,
and audio visual
requirements to the ASECS Business Office ( (Fax: 336-727-4697)
Please be reminded that the Society’s rules permit members to present only one
paper at the meeting.
Members may, in addition to presenting a paper, serve as a session chair, a
respondent, or a panel
discussant, but they may not present a paper in those sessions they also chair.
If you submit a
paper proposal to more than one session, please be sure that you so notify all
the chairs to which
you have made a submission. If you fail to notify the session chairs, they will
have the right to
decide between themselves in which session the paper(s) will be presented or if
the papers will be
excluded entirely. Participants are expected to be ASECS members by 1 December
