Cambridge Classical Reception Seminar Series

Talks address the way in which the ancient cultures of Greece and Rome have been perceived, represented, appropriated or used, from within antiquity itself to the present.

Sessions take the form of a 30-40 minute presentation, followed by discussion. Members of all Faculties are most welcome, including undergraduates.

Those interested in finding out more about the CRDG , or being added to its Classical Reception mailing-list, should contact Maya Feile Tomes (mcf37@cam.ac.uk) or Ben Folit-Weinberg (bjf32@cam.ac.uk).
