and the Augustan Legacy

University of Missouri, Columbia 1-2 September 2017

Welcome to the official website of the Domitian's Rome conference, where you can learn more about the event, register for the conference, and find useful tips on travel and accommodation during your stay in Columbia.

Conference goals and objectives: This international conference will provide a forum to explore the Augustan legacy in the age of Domitian in the hope of better understanding the extent and nature of that legacy, the mechanisms of its appropriation, and how it shapes Domitianic culture more broadly. The program, which is the result of a juried process, includes papers whose focus is on history, material culture, literature, and intersections between them, with the specific goal to promote discussion across scholarly disciplines as much as possible.

Key words: Representations of the emperor/power; politics, governance, and legislative practice; religion, society, and morality; art, architecture, ekphrasis; literary and artistic patronage; allusion and intertextuality; interaction between texts and material culture.

Acknowledgments: The conference has been organized by Dr. Raymond Marks (Classical Studies) and Dr. Marcello Mogetta (Art History & Archaeology). Generous assistance has been provided by the Chancellor’s Distinguished Visitors Program, the Department of Art History & Archaeology's Blake-More Godwin Lecture Fund , and the Department of Classical Studies.
