‘Claiming the Classical’ (CTC) is an international network of academics, researchers and other interested parties. Together, we work to understand and engage with politicised appropriations of classical antiquity in the twenty-first century.

Workshop: 9th November 2018

Room G22/26, Institute for Classical Studies, Senate House, Malet Street, London.

The aim of this day-long workshop is to chart how Greco-Roman antiquity has been deployed in political rhetoric in the 21st century, exploring differences over national and continental borders as well as across the political spectrum.

Call for papers:

We are inviting proposals for brief papers focusing on a specific country or other defined area (15 mins), as well as for spotlight talks on particular cases (5 mins). Funds are available to support travel and accommodation for early career researchers and international participants.

Deadline: 1st July 2018

Summary paper:

Following the workshop, we will draft a short paper, offering a ‘snapshot’ of how classics is currently being used in political discourse globally. This will be made available freely online.
