Volume 97 of Harvard Studies in Classical Philology is a special issue, entitled “Greece in Rome,” comprising revised versions of papers presented at a Loeb Classical Conference on the question of the Greek influence on Roman culture, with a particular though not exclusive emphasis on the Augustan period. The papers reflect the complexity of the relationship between the cultures involved—Greek, Roman, and Italic—and span many fields: history, literature, philosophy, linguistics, religion, and the visual arts.

Contributors include: G. W. Bowersock, “The Barbarism of the Greeks”; John Scheid, “Graeco Ritu: A Typically Roman Way of Honoring the Gods”; Calvert Watkins, “Greece in Italy outside Rome”; Gisela Striker, “Cicero and Greek Philosophy”; Brad Inwood, “Seneca in His Philosophical Milieu”; Bettina Bergmann, “Greek Masterpieces and Roman Recreative Fictions”; Elaine K. Gazda, “Roman Sculpture and the Ethos of Emulation: Reconsidering Repetition”; Ann Kuttner, “Republican Rome Looks at Pergamon”; Cynthia Damon, “Greek Parasites and Roman Patronage”; Richard F. Thomas, “Vestigia Ruris: Urbane Rusticity in Virgil’s Georgics”; R. J. Tarrant, “Greek and Roman in Seneca’s Tragedies”; Christopher P. Jones, “Graia Pandetur ab Urbe”; Albert Henrichs, “Graecia Capta: Roman Views of Greek Culture”; and Sarolta A. Takács, “Alexandria in Rome.”

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
