"I can't go on. I'll go on". Silence as a Multifunctional Concept in Latin Domitianic Literature (ca.81-105)

Affiliation: Ghent University

Link: http://research.flw.ugent.be/nl/tim.noens

Brief Description:

This project seeks to examine the functions of silence in Latin literature written during and just after the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian (ca.81-105). The uses of silence(s) in texts will be explored as a narrative phenomenon; as a possible commentary on generic hierarchies; and as a way for authors to create a self- image in an imperial culture.
Methodologically, this project seeks to interpret the appearances of silence in Domitianic texts by reading these texts through modern literature and art. Departing from the concept of reading as a dialogical process that blurs the borders of historical periods and scholarly categories, it explicitly explores the meaningful interaction between ancient and modern texts. The interpretation of Statius’ epics or Quintilian’s Institutio by a 21-centurieth reader, for example, will be as much determined by (scholarly conventional) ancient models (e.g. Vergil, Cicero) as by the novels of Samuel Beckett, the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud, the short stories of Jorge Luis Borges, etc. In this way, the project aims to offer an answer to the question how we can read and re-create ancient literature today, in our (post)modern culture.

Ambiguities of War in the Narrativity of Silius Italicus' Punica

Link: https://uni-tuebingen.de/forschung/forschungsschwerpunkte/graduiertenkollegs/grk-1808-ambiguitaet-produktion-und-rezeption/beteiligte/alumniae/elisabeth-schedel/

Brief Description:

Das Dissertationsprojekt beschäftigt sich mit dem epischen Großgedicht Punica des Silius Italicus, das auf über 12.000 Versen und in 17 Büchern die Geschehnisse des Zweiten Punischen Krieges behandelt.

Nachdem sich die Silius-Forschung der letzten Jahre in zwei Lager gespalten hatte, wonach die Punica entweder als ‚optimistische‘ Fortsetzung der vergilischen Aeneis, oder ‚pessimistisch‘ in der Nachfolge des lucanischen bellum civile gelesen werden können, soll in dieser Arbeit gezeigt werden, dass diese stark divergierenden Forschungsergebnisse dem so in der Forschung noch nicht untersuchten Ambiguitätscharakter der Punica geschuldet sind. Es wird dabei der Frage nachgegangen, auf welche Weise der eine Text die beiden sich gegenseitig ausschließenden, aber doch gleich plausiblen und kohärenten Interpretationen zulässt, welche Textstrategien also Hinweise auf mögliche Rezeptionsangebote geben. Antworten auf diese Frage verspricht eine interdisziplinäre Verbindung strukturalistisch narratologischer Ansätze mit neueren kognitionstheoretischen Modellen. Im Zentrum der Betrachtung steht dabei insbesondere die aus der analytischen Philosophie in die Narratologie übertragene Theorie der möglichen Welten. Ziel ist es herauszuarbeiten, dass den in der tatsächlichen Textwelt als real dargestellten Ereignissen alternative, virtuell-mögliche Handlungsverläufe entgegenstehen, die es dem Leser unmöglich machen zu entscheiden, welche seiner Interpretationen letztendlich die endgültig ‚richtige‘ ist.

Eine der narrativen Strategien, die die auf der Theorie der möglichen Welten basierende narrative Ambiguität erklärbar machen, ist, so der theoretische Zugang, das in einem lateinischen Epos innovativ multiperspektivische Erzählen, genauer: die komplexen Perspektivenprofile in den Punica. Außerdem wird die literarische Ambiguität bedingt durch die Phänomene Intertextualität und Referentialität. Es sollen deshalb als Teil des close-reading die ambiguitätsauslösenden und -auflösenden, eventuell sogar vereindeutigenden Bezüge aufgedeckt werden, die Silius durch die Er­öff­nung all seiner intertextuellen Referenzräume schafft.

Le messager et le poète. Étude sur la représentation de la communication à distance dans l’Iliade.

Affiliation: Université de Lausanne

Brief Description:
Je mène actuellement une enquête sur la façon dont le poète de l’Iliade met en scène la communication à distance entre les personnages mortels ou divins. Je concentre ainsi mes recherches sur les intermédiaires qui transmettent les déclarations d’un individu à un autre et plus particulièrement sur la manière dont ces messagers expriment l’information qui leur a été communiquée.

Afin de mener à bien cette étude, j’ai choisi de développer mon propos en trois axes principaux:
1. La première examine la mise en scène de la communication à distance dans le monde mortel et humain. Si la communication entre mortel et mortel et entre dieu et dieu s’avère efficace et transparente, celle qui s’instaure entre dieux et mortels est souvent ambiguë et trompeuse. L’expérience de cette interaction impose aux humains de se méfier des discours des dieux. Elle contribue en cela à nourrir la réflexion sur la condition humaine qui est menée dans l’Iliade.
2. La deuxième partie de ma recherche est consacrée à la composition du poème iliadique. Elle interroge l’exploitation par le poète de schémas narratifs récurrents, notamment lorsque le messager transmet à son destinataire le discours qu’on lui a confié (voir « buts de la recherche » 2.2.2 : Implications narratologiques de la communication via messagers).
3. Enfin, la dernière partie de mon étude questionne la symétrie des postures du messager et du poète. Tous deux transmettent en effet un récit soit inspiré par un émetteur identifié au sein de l’Iliade — pour le messager — soit inspiré par les Muses — pour le poète. C’est alors la relation entre le poète et sa source d’information que j’interroge par l’intermédiaire du messager.

The concept of ‘Man’ in the Odyssey and the Ramayana – a comparative study of the Greek and Sanskrit epic traditions

Affiliation: Balliol College, Oxford

Brief Description:
The project will explore what can be learned about the idea of 'man' in the Odyssey and Ramayana. It is based on the notion that the idea of 'man' is central to both epics, and that by comparing the two traditions there will be ways to look at the differing natures of the two epic traditions, as well as some of the common ground based on both the analysis of the 'plots' and philological analysis of the poems. Behind the project is the notion that there are common Indoeuropean ideas and links which have yet to be discovered.

Metaleptisches Erzählen in Homers Ilias

Affiliation: Georg-August-Universität Göttingen

Link: http://www.sfb1136.uni-goettingen.de/mitglieder/leonie-zitzmann.html
Brief Description:

In 2009 Irene de Jong demonstrated that metalepsis as a narrative technique (meaning transgression of boundaries between narrative levels, G. Genette) is already attested in ancient Greek literature. Her main theoretical hypothesis is that metaleptic devices in Homeric poetry are not only compatible with aesthetic illusion, but even increase it (unlike their paradoxical effects in modern literature). Examining this hypothesis, I will investigate the whole range of metaleptic phenomena in the older Homeric epic, both theoretically and through text-based analysis. I will focus on the relation between the extradiegetic and the intradiegetic narrative level (as there is no metadiegesis in the Iliad), that is to say on the relation between the narrative situation (the aoidos’s presentation) and the narrated world. In particular, the phenomenon of metaleptic mirroring (cf. mise en abyme, W. Wolf) between these two narrative levels will be analysed, including passages in which a character’s emotion (such as θάμβος – amazement, cf. Il. 24,480–4) is mirrored (doubled) on the extradiegetic level of telling. By use of a so-called “homerischer Modelladressat” (homeric model addressee; cf. “Modell-Leser”, U. Eco and F. Jannidis), the level of reception will play a central role in this narratological study.

Fate, Destiny, Prognostication and Dream Divination across Pagan and Christian Cultures: The Case of Dracontius

Affiliation: Università di Pavia

Brief Description:

The research seeks to list and analyse words and expressions related to the themes of fate, destiny, prognostication and dream divination in both pagan and Christian works of the poet Dracontius (5th century AD). The author seems particularly suitable for this approach: on the one hand, his pagan works traditionally refer to the ancient concepts of paganism; on the other hand, he seems to have taken into account many aspects of Christian theology in his religious works. No less importantly, his works show a remarkable cultural continuity during the Medieval period (for instance in the works of Eugenius Toletanus). Particular attention will be paid to identifying the differences in context and use of these themes within the two types of works. A complete analysis of every occurrence will be provided, and all contexts will be broadly discussed.

Poetik, Character design und Erzähltechnik in den Dionysiaka des Nonnos von Panopolis

Affiliation: Universität Wien, Institut für Klassische Philologie, Mittel- und Neulatein

Brief Description:

Nonnus of Panopolis in Upper Egypt (today Akhmim) is the author of the last large-scale epic poem of antiquity, the voluminous 48 books of the Dionysiaca. In it the wine-god Dionysus successfully accomplishes his expedition to India and his entry into Athens and Greece in order to teach mankind the cultivation of the vine. Furthermore, Nonnus is the author of an epic Paraphrasis of the Gospel of St John, thus being both a pagan and a Christian writer. In his poetry he combines traditional pagan literature with modern forms of story-telling applied by poets in antiquity since the times of Homer. The objective of the project is to describe and to analyse significant passages by means of a close literary interpretation in order to perceive the plan and the structure of the epic, and to unveil the poet’s technique in constructing the storyline and in creating the characters of his narrative. The analysis of mythological figures, development of personas and stylistic elements of the poetry displays Nonnus’ connection with classical literature and the mythic past of the world of Homer’s epic as well as a close affiliation with “Hellenic” intellectuals in the cities of the eastern Roman empire in late antiquity.

Reinventing Epic poetry. Creativity and Tradition in Late Antique Epyllia.

Affiliation: Ghent University

Brief Description:
The modern term “epyllion” commonly refers to a narrative poem in hexameters, which is shorter than a full epic. Literary overviews tend to focus on Hellenistic Greek epyllia, considered pioneers of the genre, and the classical Latin tradition, chiefly represented by Catullus’ Poem 64. Late antique epyllia, however, have received much less attention, both as individual poems and as exponents of a period of revival for hexameter poetry in general. This project proposes a first comprehensive study of Greek and Latin epyllia from Late Antiquity (3rd-6th AD). The primary focus lies on the generic self-presentation of these poems. Is their shortness thematized? By which means (generic topoi and intertextuality, explicit references, selfpresentation of the narrator, characterization of the heroes) do these miniature epics define themselves within the epic/epyllic tradition? The late antique context complicates the already problematic delineation of what can be regarded as an epyllion. The period is characterized by a remarkable prolificacy of hexameter poetry (didactic, ecphrastic, panegyric epic) as well as the emergence of the first high-brow Christian poetry, which led to genre experiments. By focussing on how these texts present themselves to their audience, this project aims to lay bare the mechanisms of tradition and innovation that allowed these learned poets constantly to reinvent the essentially "epic" genre of hexameter narrative.

Calliope's daughters. Women, epic, and occasional poetry in the early modern Ibero-American world, 1556-1756

Affiliation: Ghent University

Brief Description:

Epic poetry has traditionally been considered a male genre, written by and for men. This project seeks to contest this view by drawing attention to a corpus of epic poetry and heroic verse written by and for women in the early modern Ibero-American world. Women writers in the Spanish and Portuguese empires not only wrote full-length epics but also participated alongside men in 'poetic jousts' for which they wrote heroic verse. In some cases, they were even commissioned to write poetry or to collaborate with male writers. This project argues that these texts have tended to be overlooked for two reasons. First, many of these works were written for local festivities and have thus been considered occasional poems rather than epics, despite their heroic features. Unlike traditional epics, these poems often offer second-degree reflections: they recount historical events of transnational significance but do so indirectly by evoking local acts of commemoration. The second reason is that many of these works playfully combine features of different genres, which makes them more difficult to classify. By recuperating the works of these women writers, who came from different regions (Spain, Portugal, the New World) and circumstances (nuns, wives, widows, of noble and more humble origins), I seek to show the inclusiveness and dynamism of a genre, which was considerably more open than has traditionally been thought.

Brief Description:

Im Projekt wird die Geschichte epischer Versdichtungen im deutschen Kulturraum des ‚langen‘ 17. Jahrhunderts erforscht. Die Textgattung des carmen heroicum gilt in den poetologischen Selbstbeschreibungstexten der frühen Neuzeit als das wichtigste dichterische Genre; gleichwohl ist über seine Entwicklung im deutschen Kulturraum in dieser Periode noch relativ wenig bekannt. Das Projekt widmet sich der Schließung einer Forschungslücke, die einen zentralen Bereich der deutschen Literaturgeschichte betrifft. Es kann das Bild der Geschichte literarischer Gattungen in der frühen Neuzeit grundlegend korrigieren und in seiner Komplexität plastischer hervortreten lassen. Den Kern der Projekttätigkeiten bilden die Vorarbeiten zur Erstellung eines literaturhistorischen Repertoriums epischer Versdichtungen im ‚langen‘ 17. Jahrhundert (ca.1570-1740).

Thebarum Fabula: Digital Library of Theban Myth with Critical Editions and Translations

University Affiliation: Department of Latin and Greek, University of Santiago de Compostela

Collaborators: http://thebarumfabula.usc.es/team/

Link: http://thebarumfabula.usc.es/project/

Project Description: 

The Library has been developed by the Spain-based research team Oedipodioniae Thebae. Greco-Roman Library on civil war —FFI2015-68599-R (MINECO/FEDER)—, led by Cecilia Criado (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain), with Sandra Romano (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain) as Technical Director and Neil Coffee (University at Buffalo, US) as External Consultant. The research team emerged in 2016 as a result of the awareness that, having already achieved the aim of making a large part of ancient texts available on the net free of charge, researchers in Classical Philology should assume the responsibility of making the presence of Greek and Latin works on the Internet less purely informative, and hence more academic and more suitable for a highly specialized audience.This entails improving the quality of the editions and the encoding system of the texts, which has been made entirely in TEI-XML through ODD transformations and a documental database. The editions are published within an open-source web app and can be downloaded in their TEI-XML format. All of them contain critical apparatuses sourced from the best editions available for every text, and are accompanied by notes and commentaries, and also by parallel synced translations to different modern languages, many of them completely new and curated by specialists on every author. Our initiative, together with others that have been recently launched, is also a pioneer in the world of Classical texts by non publishing just a work or a single author. The Digital Library of Theban Myth is a thematic library and includes works from Greek and Latin authors like Aeschylus, Euripides, Apollodorus, Ovid, Seneca, and Statius, whose Thebaid we offer complete. Other ancient works related to the Theban cycle are undergoing preparation. This is a long-term project, incorporating the possibility that, in subsequent phases, this platform will accommodate a far wider corpus of themes and works, in the development of which any researchers who may wish to participate can do so, as long as they are committed to compliance with our conditions on quality.
