Untangling Blackness in Greek Antiquity: Dr. Sarah Derbew in conversation w. Lauren Ginsberg

Dr. Sarah F. Derbew (assistant professor of Classics at Stanford University) writes, teaches, and speaks widely about ancient Greece's literary and visual heritage, considering its representations of black people that nimbly provoke - and cut through - hierarchies. In conversation with Dr. Lauren Ginsberg, Derbew will highlight the key interventions of her recent book, Untangling Blackness in Greek Antiquity (2022), an anti-racist study of blackness in the ancient Greek world. More broadly, she will discuss the benefits of studying Classics alongside Black Studies and African Studies.
