On February 28 and March 1, the eighth annual colloquium of the Theodore B. Guérard Lecture Series will address the subject of diversity in Classics, both in terms of the ways in which we explore the multicultural, multi-ethnic ancient Mediterranean and in terms of the structural elements that historically have constrained these approaches, as well as wider discussion on how to move the discipline (and the perception of the discipline) forward into a redefinition of Classics for the 21st century.
The event will be live streamed for those who cannot make it to Charleston. Check out the Department’s website for further information.
