The Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in Reception of the Ancient World.

We are a two-day postgraduate conference which will take place on the 10th and 11th of December 2012. AMPRAW aims to establish an international postgraduate community for those researching the reception of the ancient world, focused around an annual conference dedicated to the discussion of the evolving nature of reception studies and their place within the study of the Ancient World.

Reception of the ancient world is concerned with the way it has been understood, defined, interpreted, used, constructed and perceived, both within antiquity itself and since, by various cultures. It includes not only a wide range of different media and modes of reception but also how these different modes and media intersect and impact one another.

This blog is the official web presence of the conference, including abstracts to be read before hand and for discussions to continue afterwards.
