BU Professor Uden Hosts ‘Literary Interactions’ Conference

Assistant Professor of Classical Studies James Uden hosted a conference entitled “Literary Interactions under Nerva, Trajan and Hadrian 3: ‘Literary Interactions across Linguistic, Cultural and Religious Boundaries.’”

“The third conference in the international research project ‘Literary Interactions under Nerva, Trajan, and Hadrian’ was held at Boston University, organized by James Uden and funded through the generous assistance of the Peter Paul Career Development Professorship. There were fifteen speakers in all, who came from the UK, Europe, Canada, and throughout the US, and a number of graduate students, who participated in lively discussions and chaired the panels. The emphasis of this year’s conference was interaction across lines of language, culture, and religion. Again, the papers shed light on a wide variety of interactions of different kinds, many of which cannot be seen merely by attention to verbal parallels between texts.”
