Martia Dementia 2018

Martia Dementia 2018

Teachers, students, and lifelong learners, the fourth annual Martia Dementia contest has commenced! Previous contests have pitted ancient authors, philosophers, politicians, and deities against one another. Now 32 heroes and heroines from Greek and Roman mythology will join the fray, bridging the gap between the mortal and the divine realms. With your help, one of them will emerge as champion of the Mediterranean. To the victor belong the spoils, and to whomever finishes with the best bracket, spoils await...

Open Access Journal: lucida intervalla: časopis za klasične nauke - a journal of classical studies

lucida intervalla: časopis za klasične nauke - a journal of classical studies
ISSN: 1450-6645
Lucida intervalla was founded by a group of members of the Department of Classical Studies in Belgrade in 1998, at the time when they perceived their reading and interpreting of ancient texts as sobering acts and breakouts from confusing reality. Hence the name of the journal. The initial idea was to provide students of Classics and general audience with reliable and up to date editions (introductions, original texts, translations, and commentaries) of important and not yet translated works of Greek and Latin literature. In the next 15 years more than 40 volumes were published. The focus of the journal gradually shifted from translations to scholarly contributions, while the proportion of contributions in languages other than Serbian increased slowly but steadily. Today Lucida intervalla is an international peer-reviewed journal devoted to publishing original scholarly research in all areas of Classical Studies.

Open Access Journal: Camenae

[First posted in AWOL 17 February 2010. Updated 23 January 2017]

Camenae
ISSN: 2102-5541
http://www.paris-sorbonne.fr/IMG/jpg/logo_3.jpg
La revue Camenae, créée en 2007 par P. Galand, co-dirigée depuis 2011 par V. Leroux, se propose de publier en ligne des numéros thématiques consacrés à la philosophie, la littérature et des arts du monde romain antique, à la relation entre ces disciplines et à leur réception au Moyen Âge et à la Renaissance, en latin comme en vernaculaire.

Elle est placée sous les auspices des « Camènes », ces nymphes prophétiques des bois et des sources, bien vite assimilées aux Muses par les Romains et tout aussi familières aux humanistes, pour que ce titre illustre à la fois la latinité, les « nœuds entre les arts » et la translatio imperii et studii, qui sont au cœur de nos préoccupations.

Open Access Journal: Indo-European Linguistics

[First posted in AWOL 23 September 2015, updated 23 February 2018]

Indo-European Linguistics
ISSN: 2212-5884
E-ISSN: 2212-5892 
image of Indo-European Linguistics
The peer-reviewed journal Indo-European Linguistics (IEL) is devoted to the study of the ancient and medieval Indo-European languages from the perspective of modern theoretical linguistics. It provides a venue for synchronic and diachronic linguistic studies of the Indo-European languages and the Indo-European family as a whole within any theoretically informed or analytical framework. It also welcomes typological investigations, especially those which make use of cross-linguistic data, including that from non-Indo-European languages, as well as research which draws upon the findings of language acquisition, cognitive science, variationist sociolinguistics, and language contact.

Classics@16: Seven Essays on Sappho

Classics@16: Seven Essays on Sappho
https://kosmossociety.chs.harvard.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Kosmos-head-d2.jpg
Edited by Paul G. Johnston
These seven papers are the product of a graduate seminar led by Gregory Nagy at Harvard in the fall of 2016, entitled ‘Sappho and her Songmaking’. The scope of the seminar was wide-ranging, encompassing philological, linguistic, historical, anthropological, comparative, and reception-based approaches to the great female poet of antiquity. The student participants in the seminar likewise came from a variety of different backgrounds: graduates and undergraduates, classicists and not. This diversity is reflected in the papers gathered in this collection. 
Three of the papers deal with Sappho’s poetry in its own right, exploring the representation and enactment of Aphrodite’s divine epiphany in Sappho 1 (Boylan), the ambiguity of Sappho’s presentation of female eroticism (Cottrell), and connections between Sappho 31 and Homeric epic (Engelmayer). Three further papers focus on aspects of Sappho’s reception in antiquity, arguing for the importance of Sapphic poetry for texts spanning nearly a millennium and from diverse genres: Aristophanes’ comedy Knights from the fifth century BC (Johnston); Daphnis and Chloe, a second-century AD Greek novel by Longus (Segers); and a hymn by the fourth/fifth-century AD Neoplatonist Synesius (Cochran). The final paper (Miller) takes a comparative approach, exploring potential commonalities and similarities between Sappho and a much earlier love poem from Ancient Egypt. 
As a whole, this collection demonstrates the richness of Sappho’s poetry and its amenability to a wide variety of approaches and readings, as well as testifying to its pervasive influence throughout the ancient and late antique world, something which is easy to underestimate given the scanty and poorly-preserved state of her corpus in the present day.
