OTHER DEPARTMENT TALKS/SEMINARS:
The University of Washington Department of Classics presents Emily Greenwood (Yale University) “Thucydides on Diversity, and Vice Versa: Unlikely Dialogues”. Friday, October 18, 2019, 3:30pm, Paccar Hall, room 295. This paper opens up a dialogue between Thucydides’ analysis of ethnic stereotyping in the Atheno-Peloponnesian War and insights from the interdisciplinary field of diversity scholarship. At the heart of this dialogue are questions about the knowledge that is “proper” to individual academic disciplines, how disciplines reproduce themselves, and what it means to do diversity in the contemporary academy.
