Casting Off Shadows is a conference at the University of Cambridge which aims to reassess our understanding of Hellenistic poetry by shifting focus away from third-century Alexandria and its ‘Callimachean’ poetry. We want to illuminate what has been obscured by Callimachus’ enduring shadow and to redirect attention to the plurality of poetic styles and traditions throughout the Hellenistic world, with all their synchronic and diachronic diversity. We are particularly interested in alternative traditions after Callimachus: the post-, non- and anti-Callimachean strands of Hellenistic poetry.

More information can be found on the Conference's own website.
