Live Podcast Recording: Our Possession of the Classical Past
Hosted by What on Earth is Going On

• What on earth is going on with our possession of the Classical Past?

• Should the artifacts of history be owned by one country or another, or should they be shared as common human heritage?

• If ancient Greek and Roman civilizations remain in many ways the backbone of our culture, society and laws, who gets to interpret them?

• And what about those with an entirely different lineage, especially indigenous peoples?

• Who are the Classics for and to whom do they belong?

Come for an evening of provocative questions and fascinating conversation. A Q&A will follow the discussion, which features a panel of three scholars from Queen's Department of Classics.

Moderated by Ben Charland, host of "What on Earth is Going on?"

This event is free and open to all, and will be recorded as an episode of the podcast.
