Minds on Stage: Cognitive Approaches to Greek Tragedy

Thursday 14 April 2016 - Saturday 16 April 2016
University Library
Witte Singel 27
2311 BG Leiden
Vossius conference room

Cognitive approaches to classical literature have been steadily gathering steam in recent years.
This conference focuses on Greek tragedy, a genre that has a long history of being read ‘cognitively’. Ever since Aristotle, many of the central themes in research on Greek tragedy centre on minds – the minds of the dramatis personae, the actors, the authors, the viewers, the readers, the artists, the scribes.

This conference hopes to bring together those interested in both Greek tragedy and questions of cognition, with the aim of taking stock as well as exploring new cognitively-inflected approaches to classical texts.

Organised by Felix Budelmann (University of Oxford) & Ineke Sluiter (Leiden University)
