Contexts for Classics

Welcome to Contexts for Classics! CFC is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary faculty consortium at the University of Michigan. We were founded in 2000 to explore the reception of Greek and Roman antiquity in different historical, critical, and creative contexts. Since 2013, we have been affiliated with the UM Institute for the Humanities.

Browse our website to find information about our mission, events we sponsor, classes we offer, faculty members who participate, our classical translations workshop, and resources for research in classical reception studies.

CFC is an overseas partner in the International Classical Reception Studies Network (ICRSN). We also have partnerships with the Classical Traditions Initiative at Northwestern University (CTI) and the Transformationen der Antike Research Group in Berlin. We encourage you to submit proposals for funding and co-sponsorship and stay informed about our events! Contact us!

Be a Victor

We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Contexts for Classics needs you—because the world needs Victors.
