The School of Advanced Study, London sponsors an S T Lee Visiting Professorial Fellowship. This year it is held by Greg Crane, Humboldt Professor of the Humanities at the University of Leipzig. During May and June he will be lecturing and holding events around the UK on the theme Greek, Latin and Digital Philology in a Global Age.
The opening event, Global Philology, will be take place at the ICS (Senate House, room 349) on 17th May, 5.30 and will be a round table discussion with Dr Imre Galambos (Cambridge), Professor Eleanor Robson (UCL), Dr Sarah Savant (Aga Khan University), Dr Michael Willis (British Museum) and will explore the question of what Classics can realistically mean in a century where China, India (with its six official Classical languages), and the various nations of the Arabic and Persian-speaking world play an active role in shaping global cultures. It will be followed by a reception.
All are welcome.
