Organisation d'un colloque international (à la Bibliothèque royale de Belgique) : "Augustus through the ages: receptions, readings and appropriations of the historical figure of the first Roman emperor"

Description

Colloque international organisé à l'occasion du bimillénaire de la mort de l'empereur Auguste par P. Assenmaker (UNamur), M. Cavagna (UCL), M. Cavalieri (UCL), D. Engels (ULB) et C. Maeder (UCL). In 2014, many academic institutions and museums celebrate the bimillenium of the death of Augustus with colloquiums, exhibitions and publications. The life, the political deeds, and the era of the founder of the Roman Empire have not been honoured or discussed to such an extent since 1937-1938, when an exhibition, the 'Mostra augustea della Romanità', at the instigation of the Fascist regime, celebrated the two-thousandth anniversary of the birth of the Emperor. Yet the outcome of the re-examinations in 2014 will not be complete if emphasis is not put on the enduring fame and fortune he experienced in the West, for this renowned figure created an empire which united, for the first time, the Mediterranean with the regions north of the Alps. The importance of this personage throughout our recorded cultural history makes a multidisciplinary approach essential. Specialits of various fields - history, cultural history, literature, art history, semiotics, etc. - will bring together their skills and knowledges to retrace the multiple interpretations and appropriations of Augustus from his death to the present days.
