 Réseau de recherche et de formation à la recherche «Poésie augustéenne» (website)

The Augustan Poetry network is an international network of research and research training, launched in 1998, which brings together 11 European Universities: Cambridge, Dublin, Florence, Geneva, Heidelberg, Lille 3, London, Oxford, Roma La Sapienza, the Scuola Normale of Pisa and Udine.


Two kinds of activities are undertaken:

  • the organisation of seminars rotating between the partner universities of the network;
  • the maintenance of a website dedicated to promoting contacts and exchanges between researchers, postgraduates and students.


The electronic Journal of Latin poetics Dictynna was created in 2004 in connection with the Augustan Poetry network. It publishes papers on Latin literature and its reception after expertise by two or three reviewers. Dictynna has been classified A by the ANVUR in February 2014.
