Welcome to the Classics in Contemporary 	
                            Perspectives Initiative

The Classics in Contemporary Perspectives Initiative at the University of South Carolina is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary group of faculty and graduate students founded in Fall 2008 to explore the complex and multifaceted ways in which the ancient reflects, refracts, and interrogates the modern and the contemporary.

The Initiative seeks to engage with a variety of problematics, including the terms of democratic theory and practice; the reception of classical texts; violence, democracy-building and citizenship in transitional societies; rhetorical invention and discourses of ethical life; ancient science and metaphysics; eros, authority, and irony.

For information about the Initiative, please browse our website or contact us.
