British Classics Outside England: The Academy and Beyond (Hardback)

£19.00
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

The essays in this informative book explore the impact of British classics--the study of Greco-Roman antiquity, with an emphasis on the classical Latin and Greek languages--beyond the borders of England itself, during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: inside the academy as specialized scholarship and teaching, outside the academy as a mode of social and cultural formation. Not only did British classics permeate England; they brought English values to Scotland, Wales, and America as well. Far into the twentieth century, to learn classics "the Oxbridge way" was to cloak oneself in the mantle of a gentleman--even when the "gentleman" was a woman.

Judith P. Hallett (Ph.D. Harvard University) is Professor of Classics, University of Maryland, College Park. Other publications by Hallett include: Roman Sexualities (co-editor, 1997), Compromising Traditions: The Personal Voice in Classical Scholarship (1996), and Fathers and Daughters in Roman Society: Women and the Elite Family (1984). Christopher Stray (Ph.D. University of Wales) is Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Classics, Ancient History, and Egyptology, Swansea University. His publications on the history of classical education and scholarship include Classics Transformed: Schools, Universities, and Society in England 1830-1960 (1998) and The Living Word: W.H.D.Rouse and the Crisis of Classics in Edwardian England (1992).
