Classics, Reception, and Social Class

A Workshop, July 1st – 2nd 2010

Appel à contributions
Date limite : 2 avril 2010


The Centre for the Reception of Greece & Rome at Royal Holloway ( will be holding a research workshop to explore the methodological challenges involved in researching the relationship between social class and the way that ancient Greek and Roman civilisation have been ‘received', especially since the late 18th century, and especially (but not exclusively) in the UK and Ireland. Issues that will be explored are the contestation of the validity of ‘class' as an analytical category, the identification of archives and other data relating to working-class education and self-education, and the use of classical material in self-consciously class-conscious organisations such as Trade Unions and political parties.

Confirmed speakers include Chris Stray (Swansea), Ed Richardson (Princeton) and Paula James (The Open University). Expressions of interest, comments, suggestions, and offers of papers and interventions are all equally welcome.
