Onwards, Upwards into the Past? Classics in the Political Discourse
15-17 Dec, 2022, in Mainz on the Johannes-Gutenberg University Campus
Populistic politics combined with social media has given rise to new forms of uses of antiquity: Ancient texts and material culture are used to corroborate far-fetched political opinions, misogynism, racism and conspirations theories. This conference wants to bring together specialists from different fields to highlight these contemporary phenomena by providing a historical perspective of former reception of Antiquity in political discourses.
This conference will be streamed on Zoom. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience for the meeting ID and pass code.
