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.”

Book Club Spotlight: The Privileged Poor

As students around the world deliberate their options for further education, only made more challenging in a pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. In The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students, Anthony Abraham Jack asks how—and why—do disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges? What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
