CFP: Psychology and the Classics: A Dialogue of Disciplines

March 24-27, 2015, Leuven, BELGIUM

This conference aims to bring together scholars from the fields of classics and psychology in order to determine what they have to offer to each other in terms of hermeneutic approaches, research questions, and methodological legitimation. Both the field of classics and that of psychology are here to be conceived in the widest sense possible, comprising, in case of the former, ancient philosophy, history, rhetoric, and literature, and, in case of the latter, psychoanalysis, social psychology, theories of emotion, and neuroscience.

Call for papers

We welcome innovative contributions from a wide array of scholars. Preference will be given to papers which have the potential to provoke fruitful interdisciplinary discussions in an open and convivial atmosphere. Abstracts for individual contributions (500 words), panels (1000 words), or alternative formats, along with a short CV of 3 or 4 lines, should reach us before 31 March 2014 on psychologyandtheclassics@arts.kuleuven.be. All proposals and contributions are expected to be in English. Early career researchers are especially encouraged to send in an abstract.
