This is facilitating the development of a series of publications on various aspects of the post-classical reception of Herakles-Hercules, via meetings between the editorial teams and a further conference, Celebrating Hercules in the Modern World, held at Leeds 7-9 June 2017.
The international network of scholars established by the two conferences is continually being consolidated and added to via the JISC mailing list Hercules: a hero for all ages and the Facebook Group Hercules2017: anyone interested in post-classical receptions of Herakles-Hercules is welcome to join!
