Blackwell Bristol Lectures

In partnership with the Institute of Greece, Rome, and the Classical Tradition at the University of Bristol, Wiley-Blackwell is proud to sponsor a prestigious series of annual lectures with a set of companion publications. These lectures provide the opportunity for members of the general public and university alike to enjoy in-depth examinations of exciting topics within Classics and Classical Reception, given by experts in their field.

Previous speakers include Glenn Most (2016) of Pisa and Chicago, who gave four erudite lectures on the Appendix Vergiliana; Andrew Feldherr (2014) of Princeton University, who gave a riveting analysis of Sallust; and Mark Vessey (2013) of the University of British Columbia, who spoke on 'Writing before Literature: Later Latin Scriptures and the Memory of Rome'.

Already published are Danielle Allen's Why Plato Wrote, Greg Woolf's Tales of the Barbarians, and Professor Erika Fischer-Lichte's Dionysus Resurrected: Performances of Euripides' Bacchae in a Globalizing World.
