Claiming the Classical (Classics and Politics in the 21st Century) - Réflexions et bilan d’un workshop sur les usages de l’Antiquité classique dans la politique contemporaine

Abstract : The Claiming the Classical workshop was held on November 9, 2018 at the Senate House, University of London (Institute of Classical Studies), with the support of the British Academy. Its aim was to reflect on the ways in which classical antiquity manifests itself in 21st century politics, particularly within far-right movements. This is the second event organized by the "Claiming the Classical" network, coordinated by two English historians: Naoise Mac Sweeney (Associate Professor of Ancient History at the University of Leicester) and Helen Roche (Assistant Professor at the University of Durham). The first is specialized in Greek identities and interculturality, the second works on education and history in Germany in the twentieth century, especially on the place of classical antiquity during the Nazi period. The network and its objectives are presented on an official website: https://claiming-the-classical.org/.
