Description: Ancients and moderns have participated in constant dialogue – sometimes friendly, sometimes hostile – that still shapes the complexities of our own approaches to the past. This seminar traces approximately two millennia of conflict and compromise between so-called “ancients” and “moderns” from ancient Greece and Rome to the French Revolution and beyond.
