Dear Colleagues,

The Malta Classics Association and the University of Malta’s Department of Classics and Archaeology are honoured to be hosting this year’s international Annual Meeting of Postgraduates in the Reception of the Ancient World in Malta later on this year. To promote accessibility, the conference is being organised in hybrid format, and will be taking place in Valletta, Malta (and online via Zoom) on 21 to 23 November 2024.

The theme of the conference is Rebirth and Renewal and we would like to invite proposals of presentations exploring how the ancient world and elements of the ancient world are repackaged, redefined and represented to new or established audiences.

By way of example, we would like to propose the following possible topic groupings:
– How the ancient world has been used, abused or presented for later political or economic ends;
– How ancient art and material culture has influenced or inspired later artistic or cultural movements;
– The representation of the ancient world in later media, ranging from written literature to film and gaming;
– Ongoing efforts to present the ancient world to new audiences;
– Reflections on how the personal background of researchers and scholars has historically and presently influenced the way they have interpreted and represented the ancient world to their audiences.

Interested parties are asked to fill in the application form below and to submit it via email to [email protected] by the end of June 2024. We would also like to inform interested speakers that there will be an opportunity to publish their work as proceedings in the MCA’s own academic journal, the Melita Classica.
