International Conference on the Ancient Novel 2015

From Tradition to Re-wiring the Ancient Novel


“A warm welcome to all scholars of the ancient novel and narrative, to ICAN V, the fifth international conference, to be held in Houston, Texas, 30 September – 4 October 2015, 39 years after the first ICAN in Bangor, Wales. It is our fond hope that all who so wish, will be able to attend the opening ceremony on 30 September and stay until the final paper on 4 October. Every effort has been made to control costs, and yet not to diminish the quality of this conference, which stands in a long and proud line of ever higher achievements.”

-- Gareth Schmeling
