ICAN 6 in Ghent: programme now finalized


Dear readers of AN-alert,

A message from Evelien Bracke on behalf of the ICAN programming committee:


Dear colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the programme of the Sixth International Conference on the Ancient Novel, with the theme ‘Roads less travelled’, has now been finalized. You can view the programme at https://www.novelsaints.ugent.be/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/ICAN-VI-programme-1.pdf. An alphabetical list of abstracts may also be consulted (https://www.novelsaints.ugent.be/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/ICAN-VI-abstracts-alphabetical.pdf).

Registration is open (until 1st September 2022 (5pm CET) for in-person participation and until 14th September 2022 (5pm CET) for online participation), and you are welcome to join us either in person or online (you can register via https://www.novelsaints.ugent.be/ican-vi/).

The conference will take place from 21st till 24th September in one of the most beautiful historic conference venues in Ghent and indeed beyond: Thagaste, an (operative) Augustinian monastery in the heart of the medieval city centre, hosting not only atmospheric meeting rooms but also a delightful inner courtyard, light-filled cloisters, a historic library, and a Baroque church. The conference will feature ca. 100 speakers distributed over 36 thematic panels. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at icanvi@ugent.be.

Best wishes,

Evelien Bracke on behalf of the ICAN programming committee
