The research carried out in the Department of Ancient Classics covers a wide range, with specialisms in three of the main branches of Classical studies, Greek and Latin literature, the social and cultural history of the ancient world, and Greek and Roman philosophy. The Department also has particular strength in the area of late Antiquity. At the same time, much of the work done crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries both within the field of Classics and without, as is indicated by our engagement with the reception of Classics and classical Antiquity.
