Congreso Internacional sobre Nono de Panópolis

From May 17th to May 20th at Universidad Complutense de Madrid took place a new edition of the international conference Nonnus of Panopolis in Context V: Poetic Frontiers, organized by David Hernández de la Fuente and Laura Miguélez Cavero.

PhD student Julia Hombre contributed to this edition with a dissertation titled “Ominous omens, broken lineages. Reading the Dionysiaca as the story of a family”, in which she suggests the possibility of reading Nonnus of Panopolis’ Dionysiaca as the family tale of the Cadmeans, being Dionysus the most prominent member of this family, instead of reading the poem as just the tale of Dionysus.
