Liberation Archaeology: Excavating the Classical Layers of 21st Century America

April 4 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Gilman 108

Lecture by Lyra Monteiro (Rutgers)

Recent public manifestations of white supremacist violence in the US consistently invoke classical antiquity as the origin of and justification for white supremacy. In this talk, Dr. Monteiro addresses why those who are invested in the discipline of Classics must understand this phenomenon, and proposes how a “Liberation Archaeology” methodology can offer a way to approach it.
