Classics after Antiquity

Classics After Antiquity examines the twofold nature of the relationship between classics and 'classical' antiquity. In one sense, classics 'after' antiquity assumes a temporal relationship of tradition and descent, in which the literatures, histories, and cultures of the ancient Greek and Roman Mediterranean have been taken up by individuals, groups, and institutions from the medieval world to the present. But the preposition 'after' also suggests problems of succession, as subsequent ages have appropriated and imagined ancient Greece and Rome in their own image and have struggled to reinvent the classical past, caught between those who rushed to embrace this past and those who disowned it altogether. The scope of the series also includes works that explore the valence of Greek and Roman institutions and discourses for historical debates that continue to resonate in the present, to say nothing of the intellectual and cultural challenge that rival antiquities pose to the very idea of the 'classical' in an era of globalization.

General Editors: Alastair Blanshard, University of Sydney; Shane Butler, University of Bristol; Emily Greenwood, Yale University
