BeschreibungTragedy and the Idea of Modernity
22 July 2011
University College London
Haldane Room, Main Building
Organizers: Joshua Billings (Oxford), Miriam Leonard (UCL)

Around 1800, particularly in Germany, the question of tragedy becomes
linked to modernity's self-definition. Within this tradition, Greek
tragedy becomes a privileged medium for grappling with the antiquity of
the ancient and the modernity of the modern – an issue which will continue
to exercise the writings of Nietzsche, Benjamin and Heidegger. This
philosophical understanding of tragedy has arguably had a more profound
influence on the modern understanding of the genre than any individual
work of classical scholarship or any single theatrical performance, but it
has failed to gain the attention it deserves within Classics. By exploring
the interplay between tragedy and modernity, the conference aims to
understand and question the place of ancient tragedy today.
