Greek Drama V

University of British Columbia

July 5-8, 2017


This is a call for papers for Greek Drama V, a conference to be held at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada, from Wednesday 5 July to Saturday 8 July 2017. The conference is the fifth of the periodic Pacific Rim Greek Drama conferences, after Sydney 1982, Christchurch 1992, Sydney 2002, and Wellington 2007. The keynote address will be delivered by Prof. Eric Csapo, University of Sydney.

As with the previous Greek Drama conferences, we seek to bring together scholars at all career stages, providing an opportunity to establish new directions for the study of ancient theatre. We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers on all aspects of Greek drama and performance.

Abstracts of no longer than 300 words (exclusive of bibliography) should be submitted to <>. The deadline for abstracts is August 31, 2016.

Inquiries may be directed to the conference organizers, Hallie Marshall, Department of Theatre & Film <>, and C. W. Marshall, Department of Classical, Near Eastern & Religious Studies <>.

The publication of a volume of selected papers is planned. Such a volume from Greek Drama III was published as BICS Supplement 87 (London, 2006), and from Greek Drama IV with Aris and Phillips (Oxford, 2012).
