BSA - Spartan Race-ism: an Other view

Events • Lecture

This event is organised by the British School at Athens

It's hard to avoid the ancient Spartans these days – they are continually popping up in popular culture and media, but not always in the most pleasant and reassuring ways. Contemporary reception seems oddly to mirror the ancient 'mirage' – either very positive or very negative, rarely a balanced middle way. In this lecture, Professor Paul Cartledge will introduce the fruits of his latest on-site Spartan research as well as revisiting some older terrain.

Professor Paul Cartledge, Emeritus A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture, University of Cambridge 

This event is free to attend and will be followed by light refreshments.
