New Approaches to Greek Literature
Andrea Capra (Durham) and Lucia Floridi (Bologna)
Intertextuality is a well-known tool in literary criticism and has been widely applied to ancient literature, with, perhaps surprisingly, classical scholarship being at the frontline in developing new theoretical approaches. By contrast, the seemingly parallel notion of intervisuality has only recently begun to appear in classical studies. In fact, The notion of ‘intervisuality’ has proved extremely productive in fields such as art history and visual culture studies still lacks a clear definition and scope which is why, possibly, it has yet to enter classical scholarship. The benefits, however, can be huge. By bringing together a diverse team of scholars, this project aims to bring intervisuality into sharper focus and turn it into a powerful tool to explore the research field traditionally referred to as ‘Greek literature’ in its visual and performative dimension. Find an extended description of the project here. It all started with a conference held in Milan in 2017, for which see the following pages.
