Interface Interpretation: exegesis as encounter in Greco-Roman literature

Playing with the notion of ‘interface’ as the space where two independent other systems meet, the Craven seminar 2024 discusses ancient texts in which different if not incompatible topics are brought together by their examination via the same interpretive lens. The focus is on how ancient hermeneutical practices shaped cultural interactions, fostered theories of value, and organised literary, spiritual, and socio-political priorities accordingly. Papers will explore forms of cross-interpretation of topics ranging from nature and physiology to poetry, law, and history. The programme is now available here
