Announcement of Conference/ Call For Papers
Epea and Grammata: Oral and Written Communication in Ancient Greece

The fourth biannual Orality and Literacy in Ancient Greece conference will be held at the University of Missouri-Columbia (Columbia, Missouri, U.S.A.) from Saturday July 1 to Wednesday July 5, 2000 (not at the University of Tel Aviv as previously decided). The convenors will be Professors Ian Worthington (History) and John Miles Foley (Classical Studies/Center for Oral Tradition).

Papers of 30 or 40 minutes maximum speaking time are invited which address the theme of the conference, however precirculated papers are especially encouraged. Key-note speakers will address the ancient world as well as other societies. As with previous conferences, each paper will be followed by a generous amount of discussion time, and refereed papers will be published by Brill as a fourth volume in the Orality and Literacy series. The conference will also include a social excursion. Registration is $45 ($25 students; $15 daily rate) and includes all conference materials, morning and afternoon teas, a social excursion and, it is hoped, all lunches. Accommodation (including breakfast) will be at the Ramada Inn in downtown Columbia ($49 double room or $47 single room + tax), which is a 5 minutes walk from the campus and conference venue.

Columbia is easy to reach: the nearest major airports are St Louis or Kansas City, and an express shuttle bus operates between each one and Columbia. Trans-World Express operates a regular flight from St Louis to Columbia Regional Airport. Fuller details will be sent with registration material.
