Silius Italicus and Flavian Culture: Pacific Rim Latin Literature Conference, 4-6 July, 2011

In association with the Flavian Epic Network

Silius Italicus’ epic on the Hannibalic War, the Punica, has moved from scholarly neglect and even contempt to being the focus of immense interest and research. Yet much scholarship has tended to divorce the poet and his poem from its context in Flavian and especially Domitianic Rome. This conference, only the second ever devoted to Silius and the first in the English-speaking world, aims to resituate Silius and the Punica in its Flavian context.

Venue: Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia (CCANESA):
The University of Sydney

The conference is generously supported by the Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia Conference Fund, The School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry, The Australasian Society for Classical Studies, The Classical Association of New South Wales.
