The Classical Presences series of which this volume is part, aims to bring 'the latest scholarship to bear on the contexts, theory, and practice' of the use and abuse of the 'texts, images, and material culture of ancient Greece and Rome' in attempts 'to appropriate the past in order to authenticate the present'. Lorna Hardwick is the doyenne of Classical Reception Studies in the UK. She is Professor of Classical Studies at the Open University and Director of the Reception of Classical Texts and Images Research Project. Together with the Project Officer, Carol Gillespie, who is her co-editor here, she has organised a number of conferences in this fastest growing area of Classical Studies. This book collects the papers of one of their conferences, Classics in Post-Colonial Worlds, which took place in 2004.
