Prof. dr. Svetlana Slapšak: Did Ancient Greeks Watch Television?

Part of the Communication and Mobility in Antiquity series

An anthropological analysis of interlocution at symposia or reading vase paintings and narration.

The art of narration entailed proficiency in verbal techniques, which on the one hand facilitated effective communication and entertainment whilst testing the orator’s knowledge throughout and, on the other hand, cultivated the genre of detailed description that provided the basis for aesthetics. These skills did not diminish in importance after the decline of the Athenian democracy but constituted the basis for judicial rhetoric and education.

The lecture will be presented in Slovenian, no simultaneous translation is provided.
