Main Areas of Research

The majority of Classical Studies faculty publications and graduate student dissertations in recent years can be grouped under three headings:

  • Poetry and poetics
  • Cultural and intellectual history
  • Ancient historiography
  • Reception studies

In addition, several departmental faculty work primarily in the areas of material culture and political and social history, which are focal points for the AAMW and ANCH graduate groups, and the resources of those groups are fully available to students in CLST as well.
