Centre for the Reception of Greece and Rome

The Centre for the Reception of Greece and Rome was set up in 2007 to bring together interests among members of staff and postgraduate students in many departments and disciplines across Royal Holloway. The Centre’s focus is on the political, philosophical and literary bridges between the contemporary world and Mediterranean antiquity.

The Centre has a distinguished publication record; these are some recent highlights of our various books, chapters and articles.

‘Reaching Out’ with Eurydice

Students and a member of staff at the department of Classics and the School of Humanities at Royal Holloway have embarked on an outreach project called the Myth and Voice Initiative. The project aims to provide safe space for engagement with feelings, emotions, obstacles and solutions surrounding the use of voice and personal expression in moments of crisis, perhaps even trauma. The focus is on school children and other youth groups.
