Myrthe L. Bartels

Plato’s Pragmatic Project A Reading of Plato’s Laws

hermes - einzelschrift 111

the author

Myrthe L. Bartels is currently Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Erfurt, Germany. She specializes in ancient Greek philosophy, especially ancient ethics and political thought. She received her PhD in Classical Studies from Leiden University, the Netherlands. Subsequently, she was Visiting Scholar at the University of Edinburgh and Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, also in Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

When we think about Plato’s philosophy, his Laws is usually not the first work that comes to mind. Plato’s final magnum opus is a perplexing text in many ways, even apart from the fact that its very existence forces us to reflect on the question of how it relates to Plato’s other major political work, Republic. The debate about Plato’s Laws usually disregards its composition and the way in which the legislation takes shape in the dialogue. This book offers a fresh reading of Plato’s Laws that treats its form as an integral part of its philosophy, and asks what the way in which Plato’s legislative project is given shape in the text suggests about the status of that project. It argues that the legislative project is strikingly pragmatic for a work of Platonic philosophy and should therefore be understood in its own terms. Rather than laying down a definitive law code for a new colony (Magnesia) that is based on, or at least in some way presupposes, a metaphysical norm, Plato’s last work creates its own moral framework, in which lawgiving provides a convenient practical test for a notion of virtue understood as social conditioning. contents

Post-Oral Homer Orality and Literacy in the Homeric Epic

hermes – einzelschrift 112

the author

Rainer Friedrich, McLeod Professor of Classics Emeritus at Dahousie University, Canada; Visiting Professor of Classics at McGill University, Canada; Visiting Professor at Boston University, USA. Research interests: Homeric Epic, Theory & Poetics of Greek Epic, Greek Drama, Greek Drama & Polis, Comparative Drama, Ritual & Drama, Brecht’s Epic Theatre & Film, Critical Theory.

Milman Parry’s comparative study of Homer and Southslavic oral song had demonstrated the existence of an oral tradition behind and within the Homeric Epic, thus establishing an indisputable link between Homer and oral poetry. Yet its exact nature has remained a moot point. For equally indisputable is the fact of the coexistence of oral and literate features within the Homeric Epic. Thus not behaving as either a straight oral song or as a straight literate text tout court, the Homeric Epic calls into question the prevailing Parryist axiom of the oral Homer. The link between Homer and oral poetry has thus become an open question again: it is, in fact, the New Homeric Question that turns on the roles of orality and literacy in the genesis of the Homeric Epic. To clarify it this book experiments with a third term: postorality. As a postoral poet, having initially been trained as an oral bard absorbing the Hellenic oral tradition, Homer would have acquired literacy in the course of his career as an oral singer. It enabled him to widen, deepen, and refine his epic art, thereby giving rise to an epic as complex and unique, in terms of both structure and characterization, as the Iliad.

Christopher Collard

Colloquial Expressions in Greek Tragedy Revised and enlarged edition of P. T. Stevens’ Colloquial Expressions in Euripides

hermes – einzelschrift 113

the author

Christopher Collard held posts in the Universities of Liverpool, Kent, Swansea and Oxford, where he now lives in retirement. His principal books are annotated editions of Euripides’ Supplices and Hecuba; (in collaboration) Iphigenia at Aulis, the fragmentary plays, and Cyclops and the major fragments of Greek satyric drama; an annotated translation of Aeschylus; a volume of his selected papers. He has been a General Editor of the Aris and Phillips Classical Texts, including twenty volumes of Euripides, and an editor of Classical Quarterly.

Stevens began identifying and collecting colloquialisms in Tragedy in 1937, refined his definitions in 1945 and finished his work with the monograph upon Euripides of 1976. This revised and enlarged edition assesses the contribution to the field by subsequent scholars. It adds many expressions to Stevens’ list, which is now divided into two categories: expressions that are confidently identified as colloquial, and almost as many that are probable or possible. An unexpected finding is that Sophocles used hardly fewer such expressions than Euripides. The books’ chief aim is to broaden the evidential basis for colloquialisms in Tragedy, and to attempt a more useful evaluation of their usage: statistics are gathered on their distribution and location, and their frequent concentration in types of dramatic and stylistic context. Many individual passages, and the possible use of colloquialisms for characterization, are discussed. The book includes full indices locorum for expressions and usages. contents

The Polis in the Hellenistic World

the editors

Henning Börm is Privatdozent in Ancient History at the University of Konstanz. His work focuses on Greek historiography, monocratic regimes and civil wars in antiquity, especially in Hellenistic Greece and in the Roman Empire. Nino Luraghi is the D. Magie Professor of Classics at Princeton University. He has published widely on ancient Greek history and historiography. His interests include tyranny and monarchy in Greece from the archaic age to the Roman conquest, ancient and modern slavery, ethnic identity and tradition, and Greek and Roman historiography and its audiences.

After having been for decades the province of a relatively small group of scholars, the Hellenistic polis has become central to the research agenda of Ancient historians more broadly. This development can be traced from the early nineties of the last century, and has picked up pace in a sustained fashion at the turn of the millennium. Recent research has started approaching the Greek polis of the centuries between Alexander and Cleopatra as a specific historical phenomenon, striving to define its most peculiar aspects from as many angles as possible, and to point to new avenues of interpretation that might contribute to recognizing its historical role. In this general framework, the present volume attempts to explore new lines of thought, to question established ways of reading the evidence, and to take stock of recent developments. The contributors do not subscribe to any particular shared approach; on the contrary, their approaches and questions stem from many different scholarly traditions and methodologies. Rather than seeking to achieve a complete coverage, the volume provides a selection of current research agendas, in many cases offering glimpses of ongoing projects. contributors

Was there any awareness of environmental problems among intellectuals and politicians of the ancient world? Did they even have notions of ‘pollution’, ‘exploitation’, and ‘depletion’ of natural resources? And what forms did human action take for the protection of the environment? The authors – from the fields of Ancient History, Classical Archeology, Ancient Laws, and History of Medicine – focus on the environmental and ecological awareness in the ancient world, both in material evidence of daily life and in the intellectual thought. They analyse if there was a common awareness of environmental and ecological questions, or if there were only a few and isolated measures aimed at the interest of special social groups and at specific political goals. They discuss to which extent the ancient evidence can be used to identify the roots of modern environmental sensitivity. contributors

European Integration and new Anti-Europeanism III Perceptions of External States on European Integration

The history of European integration has always known “external states” that did not want or were not able to join the process of European integration. The EU might indeed not be seen as attractive: Since 2008, it has had to face many crises, first the financial crisis, then the migration and Schengen crises in 2015, and finally the “leave” vote in Great Britain in 2016, the so-called “Brexit”. Euro-skepticism has continually increased in EU-member states as the rejection of various EU treaties proved. On national as well as EU levels, the strength of anti-European parties has grown. The present volume, edited by Birte Wassenberg and Patrick Moreau, concentrates on these “external states”, particularly their attitude towards Europe. By looking at the geopolitical context, a wide range from historical constants to a changing of attitudes is shown and proves that the EU remains a fundamental actor of European politics and that its attraction continues to be very powerful.

Castle-talks on Cross-Border Cooperation Fear of Integration? The Pertinence of the Border

studien zur Geschichte der europäischen inteGration – vol. 32 the editor

Birte Wassenberg is Professor in Contemporary History at the Political Sciences Institute (IEP), University of Strasbourg. From 1993 to 2006, she was Attachée territoriale at the Regional Council of Alsace. Since 2013, she holds a Jean Monnet Chair on the contribution of cross-border cooperation to the European Neighborhood Policy.

In Europe, the Schengen crisis, spurred off by the unexpected migration flow in 2015, led to a re-questioning of the functions of “borders” in European integration. Especially the ideal of a “Europe without borders” is crumbling and the re-introduction of border controls in several EU member states not only slows down the process of European Integration, but also represents an obstacle to cross-border cooperation. One of the main consequences of this crisis is also growing euroscepticism and a new fear of integration which might even lead to the disintegration of the EU. The present publication regroups the contributions to four “castle-talks on cross-border cooperation” organized at the château Pourtalès, in Strasbourg, between 2012 and 2016, in the framework of Birte Wassenberg’s Erasmus and Jean Monnet activities supported by the European Commission. The different contributions deal with the theoretical link between borders, international relations and cross-border cooperation, by examining borders as places of cross-border governance, as gatekeepers of sovereignty and security, as “scars” of history and as places of reconciliation. contributors

Gabrielle Robilliard

Tending Mothers and the Fruits of the Womb The Work of the Midwife in the Early Modern German City

Medizin, Gesellschaft und Geschichte – vol. 64

the author

Gabrielle Robilliard is an independent scholar and academic translator specialising in the history of medicine, in particular early modern midwifery and obstetrics in Germany, as well as the history of early modern work. She completed her doctorate at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, and has lectured in the history of medicine at the Universities of Bremen and Lüneburg.

The early modern period saw a fundamental shift in the history of childbirth from midwifery as a traditional, largely female occupation to modern obstetrics. The seeds of this transformation were sown in the cities, where municipal governments and their medical officials began reworking the often centuries-old systems of municipal midwifery. In Leipzig they overhauled midwife education and in the 1730s appointed a municipal man-midwife. But why all the commotion about midwifery? How ‘novel’ were these developments really? And how did all these changes affect the everyday work of the city’s midwives? Drawing on a vast array of administrative sources, Gabrielle Robilliard explores the world of Leipzig’s midwives and early man-midwives from 1650 to 1810. Employing a prosopographical approach, she illuminates in minute detail the occupational culture and structure of both official and unofficial midwifery within the city – including social and economic milieus, client networking practices, and inter- and intraprofessional rivalries – and examines the nature of the encounter between traditional practice and new ways of organising urban midwifery provision. contents

Socio-Economic Development of Indawgyi Lake, Myanmar

urban and regional development in myanmar – vol. 1

the author

Zin Mar Than received her PhD at the University of Cologne where she is currently a Research Associate at the Institute of Geography.

Indawgyi Lake in Kachin State, located in the northern part of Myanmar, is the largest inland freshwater lake in the country, with rich aquatic flora and fauna, high biodiversity and a (largely) intact ecosystem. Since 1999 the “Indawgyi Wetland Bird Sanctuary” has been declared a conservation area. Still, it is a peripheral region and lagging behind in its development. At present the three main economic activities are agriculture, fishing and gold mining. Zin Mar Than offers an in-depth analysis of the socio-economic situation of the area and identifies its future development potentials using the SWOT approach (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats). In this context the author discusses concepts of endogenous development and sustainability. Special emphasis is placed on developing ecotourism as a fourth economic activity in the area and to meet the needs of long-term conservation.

Anke Schwarz

Demanding Water A Sociospatial Approach to Domestic Water Use in Mexico City

Megacities and global change / Megastädte und globaler Wandel – vol. 22 the author

Anke Schwarz studied Urban Planning in Hamburg and Vienna, and obtained a PhD in Urban Geography from University of Hamburg in 2016. Between 2006 and 2014, her extensive research on Mexico City was supported by scholarships from the Heinrich Böll Foundation. Schwarz specializes in the social production of space and territory, the spatialization of social inequalities, urban infrastructures, and everyday practices.

In the essentially water-rich basin of Mexico City, water taps are now installed in most homes. Yet in many of the city’s poorer neighborhoods in particular, water is supplied intermittently and taps often remain dry. How does such a socially constructed water scarcity affect water-related everyday practices in the home? And what is the relation between urban space and domestic practices of water use? In this study, Anke Schwarz employs a sociospatial approach which infuses Pierre Bourdieu’s Theory of Practice with a relational understanding of space. She draws upon in-depth interviews with 53 residents of Mexico City’s Federal District, taking subjective experience as a starting point, and adds a historical angle through the instrument of habitat biographies. With respect to the pressing issue of urban water supply, Schwarz offers a fresh perspective to urban geography by placing an emphasis on a sociospatial approach on the micro scale. She demonstrates how water use can be a demanding everyday task even in cities where virtually all dwellings do have water taps. Rooftop tanks and jugs of bottled water are only the most visible tokens of the differences made by such supply limitations. contents
