About the Conference

In keeping with the National Endowment for the Humanities’ new call for interdisciplinary transcultural projects, this conference will focus on “intercultural receptions” across time and space. Reading, in the title, is broadly conceived in the sense of reception of “cultural” forms and genres, including texts, buildings, art works, rituals, and performances. This year’s conference will particularly focus on the reception of ancient, medieval, and early modern texts, whether literary or philosophical, across genres, periods, and geographical spaces.
