This well timed quantity makes an attempt to formulate new fascinating methods of conversing concerning the whole proposal of literacy within the old world--literacy now not within the experience of no matter if 10% or 30% of individuals within the historical international may learn or write, yet within the experience of text-oriented occasions embedded in a selected socio-cultural context. the amount is meant as a discussion board within which chosen prime students reconsider from the floor up how scholars of classical antiquity may perhaps most sensible technique the query of literacy long ago, and the way that research may well materially intersect with adjustments within the approach that literacy is now considered in different disciplines. the outcome will provide readers new methods of puzzling over particular parts of "literacy" in antiquity, akin to the character of non-public libraries, or what it capability to be a bookseller in antiquity; new constructionist questions, corresponding to what constitutes studying groups and the way they model themselves; new takes at the public sphere, reminiscent of how literacy intersects with commercialism, or with using public areas, or with the development of civic identification; new essentialist questions, comparable to what "book" and "reading" represent in antiquity, why literate cultures enhance, or why literate cultures subject. The booklet derives from a convention (a Semple Symposium held in Cincinnati in April 2006) and comprises new paintings from the main impressive students of literacy in antiquity (e.g., Simon Goldhill, Joseph Farrell, Peter White, and Rosalind Thomas).
