Chapter Summary

This section of the book Politics of Orality: Orality and Literacy in Ancient Greece, Vol. 6 contains a list of recent volumes in the book series supplements to Mnemosyne. The book explores the tensions and controversies that arise as society moves from an oral to literate culture. In July 1995, the first conference on Orality and Literacy in Ancient Greece was held at the University of Tasmania in Australia. The conference was organized by Ian Worthington in response to a growing interest in how oral or literate Greek culture was. In a literate culture traditions become authenticated by being written down and fixed in writing. In a predominately oral culture like Cree, where individuals grow up with storytelling, traditions preserved in stories are authenticated aurally.
