Centering Race, Ethnicity, and Gender

Centering Race, Ethnicity, and Gender

In 2022 the OSU Department of Classics made two hires focused on the study of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender (Harriet Fertik and Christopher Parmenter). This, combined with our established strengths in the study of modern Greek and American ethnicities (Georgios Anagnostou) and Black Classicisms (Tom Hawkins) immediately positioned OSU Classics as a leader in these areas. This page includes updates on our community engagement, teaching, scholarship, and upcoming events we organize and sponsor.

This is the inaugural meeting of the CREG New Work Social. We will meet once each semester to discuss recent published work relevant to the study of race, ethnicity, and gender in antiquity and its reception (broadly defined) or to discuss work in progress with a guest speaker.
