This is the second of three conferences for the AHRC Research Networking project ‘Conflict Resolution through Classical Literature’, led by Dr. Martin Dinter (Principal Investigator) and Dr. David Whetham (Co-Investigator) at King’s College London.

At this conference, participating scholars will produce new research on how Classical literature communicates and showcases conflict resolution skills, and develop ways of employing Classical literature in communicating these skills to conflict-affected youth. In so doing, they will examine ancient models of conflict resolution and map these onto the current political situation in Colombia and Brazil.

In addition, they will evaluate how the Classics have historically informed pedagogical initiatives in these countries and devise ways in which ancient literature can continue to enhance peace-related education.
