Northern Association for Ancient Philosophy

Annual Meeting

 April 13th - 15th, 2010, University College, Durham

The 2010 meeting of the Northern Association was a specially-extended two-day conference to celebrate the work of Christopher Rowe after his retirement, in 2009, from the Chair of Greek at Durham University. The conference was held at University College, Durham, based in the Norman Castle which forms part of the Durham World Heritage Site. The papers were by an international cast representing Christopher’s friends, collaborators and former students, and focused on a subject dear to his heart : how to read Plato’s dialogues.


The meeting was co-organised by Christopher Gill (Exeter), Dimitri El Murr (Paris I Pantheon-Sorbonne), and George Boys-Stones (Durham).

The organisers gratefully acknowledge financial support from : The Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies, The Aristotelian Society, The Classical Association, Durham University Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.
