Föreläsning om historisk narratologi ved Eva von Contzen

Torsdag 30 November får forskargruppen ”Text and Narrative in Byzantium” besök av Dr Eva von Contzen från Freiburg. Hon ger ett internt seminar för gruppen och en offentlig föreläsning om historisk narratologi med titeln:

What Was Narrative? Introducing Historical Narratology

Dr Eva von Contzen

Torsdag 30 November 2017, 15:15-17:00

Rum 6-0022, Engelska Parken

What is historical narratology and why do we need it? Which problems does it address, which methods does it draw on? Who are the key proponents in the field, and what are their main tenets? How is historical narratology connected with ‘narrative theory’ more generally, and with modern critical theory? This lecture attempts to answer these questions by providing an overview of the history and the status quo of historical narratology and argues for the importance of historicising our critical parameters.

Dr Eva von Contzen är Junior Professor i engelsk litteratur vid Freiburg Universitet och ledare för ERC-projektet “Lists in Literature and Culture”. Hon doktorerade vid Freiburg Universitet i 2012, och hennes avhandling, The Scottish Legendary. Towards a Poetics of Hagiographic Narration, blev utgiven av Manchester University Press i 2016. Hon är redan ett väletablerad namn inom narratologien och håller just nu på med att redigera boken Handbuch Historische Narratologie.

Alla är välkomna!

Andrew Walker White: Orthodox Ritual in Byzantium

Andrew Walker White (Stratford University, VA) besöker patristikseminariet vid Newmaninstitutet för att tala över ämnet Orthodox Ritual in Byzantium:  A Performing Arts Perspective.

In his recently-published study, ”Performing Orthodox Ritual in Byzanium,” White argues for a more humane, contextual approach to understanding traditional Christian ritual.  The Divine Liturgy of John Chrysostom was first composed in the midst of a Roman imperial culture where theatre remained the most popular performing art, and where clergy trained in both classical dramatic literature and in the numerous creative, fictive exercises of the rhetorical progymnasmata.  What were the performance skills at the celebrant’s disposal?  How were they deployed?  And why did he deploy them?  Together with these questions is the matter of intellectual effort; ritual composition in the early Christian era was highly demanding, and its degree of sophistication went well beyond the demands of theatrical performance–contrary to popular belief.

Tid: onsdag 17 maj, 16.15‒18.00
Plats: sal 302 (”Ateljén”), Newmaninstitutet

Douglas Olson: Athenaios och Five Greek Words

Grekiskan i Stockholm och Uppsala arrangerar två gemensamma seminarium med S. Douglas Olson (Minnesota):

1. Athenaios
A survey of how Athenaeus quotes prose authors who are not fragmentary (Xenophon, Herodotus, Plato), as a way of trying to evaluate he might handle truly fragmentary authors (Philochorus, Theopompus, Poseido-nius). Accessible even for the “Greek-less”

Tid: tisdag 7 mars, kl. 16-18
Plats: SU, Frescati B479

2. Five Greek Words
Five Greek Words, an attempt to argue for traditional classical philology by showing how looking closely at a handful of simple words, mostly from comic poets, both opens up an enormous number of interesting issues and shows how weak many of our standard reference tools and critical editions are. Greek is useful but not mandatory, and (in a sense) everything is done in translation.”

Tid: onsdag 8 mars, kl. 11.00-12.15
