Classics after the Ontological Turn: New Horizons of History and Critique

Fri. Mar. 13 03:30 PM - Fri. Mar. 13 04:30 PM
Contact: Peter J. Miller,
Location: 3D01

Prof. Greg Anderson, Ohio State University

This talk introduces the idea of "pluriversal history," an approach to history where the past is lived in many different worlds of experience, not just in one. Using Classical Athens as a case study, this talk shows how this exciting new paradigm transforms how we think about an ancient Greek polis and all its constituent elements by understanding them on their own terms. In this talk, Prof. Greg Anderson advocates for a fresh and critical approach, where Classics and other disciplines are aligned with radical social movements which question the wisdom of modern life.

Light refreshments provided. All welcome.
