Futures Of The Ancient Past

Chinese Room Jurisprudence

A lecture by Andrew Riggsby, University of Texas, Austin

Abstract to follow.

Futures of the Ancient Past looks in two directions: forward, to new and emerging trends in Classics, and backward, across centuries of other efforts to promote, contest, or redirect antiquity’s continuing influence. It thus aims to illuminate an unfamiliar history of what Classics has been, as well as to generate a new vision of what it might become.
