Ancient Narrative

As the name Ancient Narrative indicates, the areas of interest of the journal are: Greek, Roman, Jewish novelistic traditions, including novels proper, the "fringe", as well as the fragments; narrative texts of the Byzantine age, early Christian narrative texts - and the reception of these works in modern literature, film and music. Ancient Narrative is a peer reviewed open access journal, and makes no charge either to authors or to readers.

The website of Ancient Narrative also hosts the Petronian Society Newsletter: see the Archives and About > Policies.

Conference Announcement: Writing The Embodied Experience in Imperial Ecphrasis

How did the Greeks and Romans experience and describe their spectacles and material artefacts in the Imperial period? Were they concerned only with ‘de-coding’ these artefacts and performances to show off their cultural intellect or did they frame a more sensuous, embodied encounter with them? Were they as interested in form as in content, in the body as in the brain?
