Convenors

Lisa Beaven and Mark Seymour

For westerners perhaps more than any other city, Rome has long been a place of richly emotional imaginings – political, cultural, and spiritual. This one-day workshop is conceived as an exploration of the links between space, place and emotion, reflecting on how Rome as myth and Rome as space and place interact. It brings together scholars who work in diverse disciplines and across a millennium or two of time. It will be experimental, imaginative and informal, allowing scholars to enrich their own analyses through cross-pollination with insights from a diverse range of work.
