Cosmos and Creation: Lisbon 2024 Colloquium on Neoplatonism

The NEN (Núcleo de Estudos de Neoplatonismo) announces the 2024 edition of the Lisbon Colloquium on Neoplatonism, devoted to the topic of “Cosmos & Creation”, jointly organised by the Centre of Philosophy (CFUL) and the Centre for Classical Studies (CEC) of the University of Lisbon, which will take place at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (Rooms B112.C and C201.J) on the 4th and 5th April 2024.

 

In this colloquium, established scholars and young researchers will present papers that revolve around the themes of the world and its status as created (both in the senses of genesis and mimesis). These contributions will discuss questions regarding issues such as time, space, and motion, as well as the very nature of creation and creative action, as seen by Neoplatonic philosophers.

 

All are welcome and no registration is required. Certificates of participation can be issued on request.

Translation, Memory, and Politics in the Medieval World

The XIII Cardiff Conference on the Theory and Practice of Translation in the Middle Ages
The Medieval Translator

 

The medieval world was marked by the simultaneous emergence of vernacular languages in writing and the efforts of various institutions to establish and strengthen their own power and identities. Kingdoms, monastic institutions, cathedrals, noble houses, and cities sought to gain political prominence through the use of vernacular languages as a means of constructing historical memories based on older texts written primarily in Latin, but also in Greek, Arabic, or other vernacular languages. This could involve chronicles, short histories, but also hagiographies, epics or legal texts, among others.
