Classics? (Wed 4 November 2015, 6-7.15pm)

last modified Oct 27, 2015 10:27 AM
Held at the British Academy and chaired by Professor Oliver Taplin FBA, University of Oxford, this lecture will delve into the study of Classics today, nationally and internationally, now and in the future – from philology to interdisciplinarity, from nostalgia to impact with Professor Mary Beard FBA. Mary Beard is one of Britain’s best-known Classicists: her BBC TV series Meet the Romans aired in 2012, and she writes an engaging and thought-provoking blog, A Don’s Life.
