Herodotus Comes to Charlottesville

He’ll be here next week:

The Department of Classics of the University of Virginia is pleased to
announce that Paul Cartledge, A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture at
the University of Cambridge, will be giving a lecture entitled Herodotus
and The West.

The lecture will take place at 5 pm on Tuesday, 31 March 2009, in the Gibson
Room, Cocke Hall. A reception will follow.

One of the world’s leading experts on the history of Ancient Greece,
especially Sparta, Professor Cartledge is the author of numerous books,
including The Greeks: Crucible of a Civilization, The Spartans: An Epic
History, Sparta and Lakonia, Alexander the Great: The Hunt for a New Past,
Thermopylae: The Battle That Changed the World, and Agesilaos and the Crisis
of Sparta, and he is the editor of the The Cambridge Illustrated History of
Ancient Greece. Not only a first-rate scholar, he has also devoted much
energy to communicating his work to a wider audience, serving frequently as
consultant to the BBC and Britain’s Channel Four.
