Commemorating Augustus: 1st- and 20th-century perspectives

Friday 10th May 2013

Department of Classics, University of Leeds

Rooms 119 (lunch) and 101 (papers)





19th August 2014 will mark the bimillennium of the emperor Augustus’ death. The Commemorating Augustus project takes this opportunity to examine his legacy across the intervening two thousand years, and to re-evaluate him from a contemporary perspective.



The project launches officially on Friday May 10th 2013 with a half-day colloquium at Leeds, focused on the two opposing ends of its 2000-year remit. Two papers will consider the closing years of Augustus’ life and the immediate aftermath of his death in AD 14. A second pair of papers will then explore changing responses to Augustus in the mid-20th century: a charged context encompassing both his natal bimillennium in 1938 and the outbreak of the Second World War.



The event is free to attend, and all are welcome. However, we do ask attendees to register in advance for catering and name-badge production purposes. You can register your attendance for free at http://augustus-colloquium.eventbrite.co.uk.





SCHEDULE AND LOCATIONS:

12:30 – lunch and registration in Parkinson Building room 119, University of Leeds.

1:30-5pm – papers in Michael Sadler room 101, University of Leeds.



PAPERS:

Mary HARLOW (Leicester) and Ray LAURENCE (Kent): Augustus and old age (paper to be presented by Mary Harlow)

Valerie HOPE (Open University): Grieving for Augustus: emotion and control in Roman imperial mourning ritual

Penelope GOODMAN (Leeds): Peace for our time? Commemorating Augustus in 1938

Martin LINDNER (Göttingen): In search of a German Princeps: Günther Birkenfeld and his Augustus novels (1934-1962)



More information, including abstracts for the individual papers, can be found at: http://augustus2014.com/colloquia/. The colloquium should be of interest to Classicists, historians of twentieth-century Europe, and anyone concerned with Augustus’ extensive reception history. Please direct any enquiries to Dr. Penny Goodman: p.j.goodman@leeds.ac.uk.





The Commemorating Augustus project will culminate in a three-day conference at Leeds on 18th-20th August 2014. A formal call for papers for this conference will be issued in late March 2013, but interim information (including suggested topics) is already available at: http://augustus2014.com/conference/. Anyone considering developing a paper for the bimillennial conference is warmly encouraged to attend the colloquium on Friday May 10th to find out more about its remit.
