Keynote on Classical Controversies

Leiden University and the National Museum of Antiquities, in cooperation with the OIKOS research group Classical receptions and traditions, are happy to invite you to the keynote lecture of the online conference Classical Controversies.

Keynote 11 November
Our keynote speaker on 11 November is dr. Donna Zuckerberg, author of Not All Dead White Men (2018). 

Daytime conference 11-13 November
The keynote by dr. Zuckerberg is part of the conference 'Classical Controversies'. This conference aims to contribute to our notions of the different ways elements of Graeco-Roman antiquity (construed in a broad sense of the word) are perceived and employed towards a particular end in most recent 21st century discourse. Its focus will be on reception by museums, in politics, and in more popular culture. This reveals the needs of our own society: what kinds of narratives about antiquity do we create for ourselves at this moment in time, and for which reasons? What do we do with antiquity? And how do these narratives use, and reflect on, earlier historical chains of reception?
