Event description: 

The group investigates the role played by the classical traditions of Greece and Rome in the institutions, intellectual life, and popular culture of eighteenth and nineteenth-century America. It asks how early Americans accessed, constructed, mobilized, and appropriated knowledge about these pre-modern societies — often times to the exclusion of others.
