CFP: Vitae auctorum: The Medieval Lives of Classical Authors
A Roundtable Session for the 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies (May 11-14, 2017)
Since the times of Ancient Greece, when “society” and “the State” were subsumed into and joined in the term, “polis,” Theater and Law/Ethics have interacted and relied on each other.
In Greece, drama tended to serve socio-political, cultural,religious, and other functions. It was a device for presenting and addressing serious and important public ethical, religious, and political issues, thereby building citizenship and engagement of the artists with public leaders and members of the public, in works by Aristophanes, Euripides, Sophocles, and Aeschylus.
