Is the language you use a part of your identity? How did the Greeks see Greek? Did the Romans feel attached to Latin? What happened when they met speakers of other languages in their travels? In this talk, the researchers of the Classical Faculty's flagship 'Greek in Italy' project share their work on identity and language in the ancient world.

This event is part of the Festival of Ideas programme.

For adults. Free of charge.

Tickets can be booked here. Please note that bookings open on Monday 22nd September at 10am.
