An International Conference in Commemoration of the Bimillennium of Ovid’s Death

May 31–June 2, 2017

Jointly sponsored by the National Social Science Fund of China,

Shanghai Normal University and Dickinson College


The conference is part of the National Social Science Fund of China Major Grant Project (No. 15ZDB087) entitled “Translating the Complete Corpus of Ovid into Chinese with Commentaries”. The conference intends to bring together scholars and translators to explore the dynamic processes of selection, tension, and negotiation that have been integral to the making and interpreting of Classical canon with a special focus on Ovid. The challenges of translating Ovid into Chinese will be discussed against this general background. As such, it serves as an opportunity not only to pay tribute to Ovid but also to promote cross-cultural conversations about the globalization of the Greco-Roman Classics. The conference will take place on the campus of Shanghai Normal University (Guilin Road #100, Xuhui District, Shanghai).

本次会议于2017年5月31日-6月2日在上海师范大学召开,为中国国家社会科学基金重大投标项目“古罗马诗人奥维德全集译注”的重要组成部分,其主题包括奥维德在世界各地的接受史、奥维德在各种媒介(抄本、视觉艺术、石碑,等等)中的构建、二十一世纪如何解构及教授奥维德的作品、奥维德汉译所面临的挑战等。通过对这些问题的梳理、反思和推进,本次会议旨在加强中文学界及翻译界对奥维德国际研究的贡献,并探索古典学国际化的新方向。本次会议是在中国大陆举办的第一次大规模的有关古典拉丁语文学的会议,在纪念奥维德这位影响深远的古罗马诗人的同时,也为古希腊罗马古典学的跨文化对话提供了契机。
