“Racing the Classics” is a two-day working conference dedicated to using and developing critical theories of race and ethnicity in all aspects of the field. The event brings together scholars whose work on ancient Greek and Roman culture has demonstrated a thorough consideration of race, ethnicity, and intersectionality to workshop writing and to build a critical feedback network for future projects; it seeks to pave new paths forward for what counts as knowledge in Classics and how we work together to produce that knowledge.
