Faculty Research

Long home to innovative research and teaching across the discipline, the UB Department of Classics's mission is to foster knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Graeco-Roman antiquity

Research Areas

Our approach encompasses the broad range of inquiry that constitutes modern Classical Studies. The field extends in time from pre-history through the height of Greek and Roman civilizations to their legacy in later European and world cultures.

In conceptual scope, it extends over the array of environments, human activities and fields of knowledge within these eras, including language, philosophy and religion, the arts and material culture (ranging from literature, the performing arts, architecture, sculpture, painting and the minor arts), to the sciences, society, politics, economy, technology and their relation to the natural environment.
