Abstract

The second annual meeting of the International Society for Late Antique Literary Studies gathered scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds and places for a stimulating two days of papers and friendly discussion. Organisers Scott McGill, David Bright, and Joseph Pucci sought papers which examined how the categories of ‘high’ and ‘low’ literature were used, considered, or made problematic by late antique authors. Participants were also encouraged to address the ways in these categories of ‘high’ and ‘low’ have framed the reception of late antique literature. In what follows I will briefly summarise each paper and the subsequent discussion. I conclude with a review of common themes and points of interest.
