Online Conference: Frames and Framing in Antiquity



Conference: Frames and Framing in Antiquity

16-18 October 2020

Online via Zoom (all times Central European Time, i.e. UTC+2)

Registration under:
Prof. Dr. Sven Günther (svenguenther@nenu.edu.cn
)


Key-note speaker: Prof. Dr. Hartmut Leppin (University of Frankfurt)

Organizers: Sven Günther (Institute for the History of Ancient Civilizations, Northeast Normal University, Changchun) & Elisabeth Günther (Institute for Digital Humanities, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Frames and framing have entered the public discourse already before covid-19 but have recently become a hotly debated issue due to the styling of news, for instance in social media, that partly replace other possibilities of social communication at the moment. Based on models from the field of sociology, psychology and communication studies, "frames" describe how people unterstand, react to, and are influenced by situations and activities (frame analysis). The phenomenon of "framing" assesses how individuals or institutions might use, modify, or challenge existing frameworks by creating new frames, or add new slots and fillers to common frames. Thus, the concept of framing is a useful tool for a broad range of disciplines since communication is viewed as a complex entanglement of sender, receiver and medium and their related frames and not as a one-directional process of sending information from A to B.

In recent years, frame analysis has also gained attention in the field of ancient studies, particularly in ancient history and linguistics as well as classical archaeology with a specific focus on visual studies. However, the model's full potential is yet to be exploited as it is still not comprehensively tested against the various ancient sources. Hence, the conference attempts to fill this obvious gap by assessing the theoretical tool-set as well as the application of such models to case-studies.

The dimensions of frame and framing models will be discussed in five panels, with each paper lasting 5-7 minutes followed by a respondent and an open question slot:

Panel I: From Theory to Practice
Panel II: Greek Frames and Modern Perception
Panel III: Greek and Roman Frames
Panel IV: Framing Strategies in the Late Roman Republic and Early Empire
Panel V: Framing Narratives in Archaeology

The key-note speech will be given by Professor Hartmut Leppin (University of Frankfurt) on the concept of parrhesia ("free speech") in antiquity.

We warmly welcome participants to register under:
