    • Welcome to Global Antiquity!
    Salvete omnes!

    As the advisor of the Global Antiquity independent minor, I’d like to welcome you to our new website! Our interdisciplinary faculty work in History, Literature, Philosophy, and Political Theory; the inspiration for this independent minor developed from the Ancient Worlds research cluster, and our collaborations in the Common Curriculum.  Students, please explore our exciting upcoming events: lectures from visiting speakers, rich course offerings in Sanskrit philosophy, Roman archaeology, Greek Comedy, and Classical Chinese, and opportunities for summer study.  Our vibrant community shares a commitment to philology as the basis for studying the ideas and cultures of antiquity, and reception of classical traditions.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about the minor, or suggestions for our program.

    Steven Green, Associate Professor, Literature
