Dear all,

Ben Brown and I are pleased to announce the 2022 Critical Antiquities Network Public Lecture.

The lecture is entitled, ‘The Idea of Critical Antiquities: Towards a Manifesto,’ and will be delivered by Ben Brown (Classics and Ancient History, University of Sydney) and Tristan Bradshaw (School of Liberal Arts, University of Wollongong).

Over the last two years, Ben and I have managed to gather some excellent colleagues from around the world into the network, especially through the Critical Antiquities Workshop. In that forum, we have seen the way that the conjunction of ancient traditions and contemporary critical theories stimulates contemporary research in a number of different and exciting ways. But Ben and I wish to open 2022 with a public statement that elaborates on, and hopefully clarifies, what “critical antiquities” means to the two of us.

We are also thrilled to announce that Professor Brooke Holmes (Classics and Comp Lit, Princeton University) and Professor Paul North (German, Yale University) will serve as respondents and Professor Julia Kindt (Classics and Ancient History, University of Sydney) will moderate the event.

The lecture will be held on Zoom on Thursday, February 24 10am-12 noon (Sydney time). For Evanston/ Chicago, that translates to Wednesday 23 Feb, 5pm-7pm.
