Classical Memories/Modern Identities
Edited by Paul Allen Miller and Richard H. Armstrong

Classical antiquity has bequeathed a body of values and a “cultural koine” that later Western cultures have appropriated and adapted as their own. However, the transmission of ancient culture was and remains a malleable and contested process. This series explores how the classical world has been variously interpreted, transformed, and appropriated to forge a usable past and a livable present. Books published in this series detail both the positive and negative aspects of classical reception and take an expansive view of the topic. Thus it includes works that examine the function of translations, adaptations, invocations, and classical scholarship in the formation of personal, cultural, national, sexual, and racial formations. Inquiries should be directed to Eugene O’Connor at The Ohio State University Press.
