ONE-DAY COLLOQUIUM SATURDAY 10 MARCH 2007
CORPUS CHRISTI COLLEGE, OXFORD

Meaningful remains: working with literary fragments from  early Rome

A one-day colloquium on working with literary fragments from early Rome 
will be held at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, organized by Gesine 
Manuwald (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg) and Costas Panayotakis 
(University of Glasgow) under the auspices of the Corpus Christi College 
Centre for the Study of Greek and Roman Antiquity on Saturday 10th March 
2007.
The purpose of this conference is to highlight the problems scholars are 
confronted with when working with literary genres partly preserved in 
fragments, to demonstrate the importance of including fragmentary works 
into the study of the respective genre and thus of Roman literature, to 
look at the advantages and the dangers in comparing authors whose text 
survives in fragments with authors (of the same genre) whose text survives 
in complete form, and to discuss what may be established for the works 
surviving in fragments and for the whole genre despite the fragmentary 
nature of the evidence.
Speakers will either discuss the problems which a literary genre or an 
aspect of this genre presents for interpretation in view of the extant 
fragmentary evidence, or deal with the general question of working with 
fragments with regard to their respective genre or author.
Papers should last for 30 minutes at most, allowing 20 minutes for 
discussion.

The programme is as follows:
10:15 Coffee and Registration
10:45 Opening Remarks
10:50 Adrian Hollis (Keble College, Oxford): on fragmentary Hellenistic 
and Roman didactic poems
11:40 Matthew Leigh (St Anne’s College, Oxford): on tragic fragments and 
Roman comedy
12:30 Lunch
13:30 Sander Goldberg (UCLA): on Roman epic
14.20 Anna Chahoud (Trinity College, Dublin): on Roman satire
15:10 Tea
15:40 Christopher Smith (University of St Andrews): on Roman oratory
16:30 Tim Cornell (University of Manchester): on Roman historiography
17:20 – 17:45 Concluding discussion led by Elaine Fantham (Princeton) 
(followed by drinks)

The colloquium is open to all. There will be a small charge of £12.50 (not 
applicable to graduates of Corpus Christi and to speakers): this will 
contribute to the cost of lunch and refreshments.

We shall also book a table for a meal at a local restaurant afterwards. If 
anyone would like to come to this dinner, please let Costas 
([log in to unmask]) or Gesine 
([log in to unmask]) know in advance. Those wishing 
to make a booking for the conference should write to Professor Stephen 
Harrison, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, OX1 4JF, UK 
([log in to unmask]), enclosing a payment of 
£12.50 if appropriate (UK bank cheque preferred; overseas visitors can pay 
in cash on the day). Cheques should be made payable to Corpus Christi 
College, Oxford'. Bookings should be made by February 28th 2007.'

This message is particularly aimed at new lecturers in Classics, but if 
any other list member has any strong opinions on resources for teaching 
development, I would be delighted to hear these too.

I am a project officer for the Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for 
History, Classics and Archaeology and I am currently collating resources 
on innovative teaching methods to disseminate to new lecturers. In order 
for this to fully benefit Classics lecturers I clearly need to tailor the 
project to the actual needs of Classics lecturers, so I am therefore 
inviting you to:

i) Share your thoughts, ideas, wishes and grumbles on teaching and 
learning issues ii) Identify areas where you feel you would benefit from 
more resources iii) Road test new resources as they become available

All responses are valuable and welcome, so please do feel free to direct 
comments, views and questions to me at the following address:

Warm regards,

Nicola Mellor.

University College and Classics Faculty Graduate Studentship 

University College and the Classics Faculty propose to offer one graduate 
studentship in Classics (Language and Literature) for Home/EU and overseas 
applicants starting in October 2007. The studentship will cover the cost 
of both the College and the University fee at the Home/EU (but not the
overseas) rate, and will in addition provide the successful applicant with 
a maintenance grant at the AHRC level (ie £12,600 in 2007-8, £12,915 in 
2008-9 and £13,240 in 2009-10) Applications for the Classics Studentship 
should be addressed to the Admissions Officer, University College, Oxford 
OX1 4BH.  The information should include:
•	the name of the Studentship applied for (ie Classics Studentship) 
and any
general qualification for the award in question
•	a Curriculum Vitae 
•	reference letters in a sealed envelope from two academic referees
•	coversheet (PDF, 50K, requires free Adobe Reader) (found at
http://www.univ.ox.ac.uk/)
The studentship is intended for students intending to read for a doctorate.
 External candidates applying for the DPhil (PRS stage) or for the 
MPhil/MSt for the studentship must name University College as their first-
choice College on their application form (GAO 2007) for graduate study.  
The closing date for the third gathered field is 12 January 2007.  
Existing students reading for the MPhil or MSt and planning to go on to 
the doctorate are also eligible to apply for the studentship but will be 
required to migrate to Univ if successful.  The award will be announced in 
March 2007 An overseas candidate to whom an award is offered will be 
required to have applied for an ORS award (see
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/postgraduate/finance/nore.shtml#orsa) and 
provide evidence of applications for other sources of funding. If a 
Home/EU candidate is awarded the Studentship he or she will be required to 
have made an application to the AHRC (see http://www.ahrc.ac.uk) and other 
funding bodies and provide evidence of these applications. Those applying 
for the studentship should therefore also apply as soon as possible for 
these other awards. If full external funding is obtained the external 
funding will replace the funds provided by the studentship, but the title 
will remain and the College will top up the award (by £1,500 for a fully 
funded Home student, and by a sum up to the value of the AHRC maintenance 
grant for an EU student whose fee liability is met by the AHRC or 
equivalent funding body). 

The closing date for the Studentships is 12 February 2007.

Conference  Call for papers

Birkbeck College, University of London

Conference:What is Masculinity? How useful is it as a Historical Category?

Provisional Publication of proceedings with Palgrave Macmillan

15th and 16th May 2008, University of London.

In recent years, there has been an explosion in scholarship that questions 
masculinity in history. This vibrant new approach has incorporated many 
different theoretical and empirical considerations in historical 
scholarship. Birkbeck College, University of London, is hosting a 
conference on 15th and 16th May 2008, with the idea of providing a 
discussion across fields and time period specialism. We would welcome 
papers in contemporary and modern, early modern, medieval, Classical and 
non-western history, from historians throughout the world who are working 
in the general field of masculinity studies. We hope the conference will 
provide discussion of the latest thinking, debates and contention in this 
field, and that it will serve as a review of where we are now in terms 
of scholarship in the field of masculinity studies. 
The highest quality papers in this conference will be published in a 
single volume collection, by Palgrave Macmillan. Please send your proposal 
to Dr Sean Brady, Birkbeck College University of London, by attachment to

We take this opportunity to remind you that the Foundation offers three 
Prizes each year for the best doctoral theses in Hellenic studies in 
Britain: with effect from the twenty first annual Prizes (for the year 
2006) the awards will be increased to £1,000 each for the best Doctoral 
Theses in Greek Studies in the following categories:
Ancient / Classical Greece; Byzantine / Mediaeval Greece; Modern Greece

Submissions for the year 2006 must be received by the Foundation, St. 
Paul’s House, Warwick Lane, London EC4P 4BN by 31st January 2007.  Only 
theses that have been examined and passed after 1st January 2005 may be 
entered for the awards.  Universities and research institutions may select 
a submission from within their departments.  The simplification of the 
submission procedure effected since the 2004 awards will continue to have 
effect.  

Those wishing to submit should send a copy of the abstract of their thesis 
together with the names of their examiners and supervisor to the 
Foundation,rather than a copy of their thesis.  A letter of recommendation 
must accompany each submission from either the Head of Department or from 
the pupil's supervisor.  The papers will be passed to the Chairman of the 
Readers, Professor E. L. Bowie of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, for 
assessment.  
The Chairman will directly contact applicants and it is envisaged, in 
order to streamline the process of selection, that a shortlist will be 
prepared taking into account not only the abstract but also examiners’ 
comments.  These naturally will be treated in the strictest confidence and 
will not be available to the Foundation itself.  Whether a thesis needs to 
be reread is in the discretion of the Chairman and candidates should 
forward a copy only on request.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
G J D Lemos, The Hellenic Foundation, St Paul’s House, Warwick Lane, 
London EC4P 4BN
