Our Mythical History

We are pleased to share with you the programme of the conference Our Mythical History: Children’s and Young Adults’ Culture in Response to the Heritage of Ancient Greece and Rome:


Zbigniew Karaszewski, “Clio with a Teddy-Bear” (2018) 

The conference will take place in the period of May 22–26, 2019 at the Centre for Studies on the Classical Tradition (OBTA) of the Faculty of “Artes Liberales” at the University of Warsaw. The scholars from all over the world will present the results of their work within the second stage of the project “Our Mythical Childhood… The Reception of Classical Antiquity in Children’s and Young Adults’ Culture in Response to Regional and Global Challenges” ERC Consolidator Grant (2016–2021).

During the conference also the results of the Schools Endeavour “De viris mulieribusque illustribus” will be pesented – a task carried out by four high schools in Poland within the project:


Moreover, we will know the winners of the video competition for youth “Antiquity–Camera–Action!” for the short movies inspired by the Ancient History. There will be also two workshops: on new approaches to ancient vases by Dr. Sonya Nevin and Steve K. Simons and on the use of the myth of Hercules in the work with the children on autism spectrum by Prof. Susan Deacy. Thus, we hope to contribute to establishing a new holistic model for work in the Humanities on the frontiers of research, education, and culture. For more materials see also here.
