Ann Johnston Fellowship Talk

We are pleased to invite you to attend a talk entitled 'Celebrating the legacy of Ann Johnston, Research Fellow at Clare Hall 1979 -1986'. Former Clare Hall President, Dame Gillian Beer will introduce the event. Dr Daniel Jolowicz, current Ann Johnston Research Fellow at Clare Hall, will then give a brief talk entitled The Ancient Greek Novels: a 'sophistic(ated) romp' followed by a short Q&A and refreshments.

Daniel Jolowicz is Junior Research Fellow in Classics at Clare Hall. His work has focused on material written in Greek under the Roman Empire, and the extent to which this material engages with material written in Latin – on which subject he is currently completing a monograph. He has also written on modes of historical allusivity in ancient fiction (especially the so-called ‘Greek novels’) and how these texts advertise their awareness of contemporary, or near-contemporary, events.

In a further project, Dr Jolowicz seeks to pursue the question of how media other than the ‘literary’ – for example, coins, inscriptions, visual iconography – interact with texts written in Greek under the Roman Empire.

The talk will take place in the Richard Eden Suite at West Court, at the far end of Herschel Road on Wednesday 25 April. The talk will commence at 6.00 pm, and there will be an opportunity for Q&A after the talk. Refreshments will be served after the talk. Clare Hall Members are welcome to attend Formal Hall following this talk - booking for this can be done here

Please book to confirm attendance at this talk for catering purposes. We look forward to seeing you there.
