Cambridge is one of the world's foremost centres of classical research, and the Classics Faculty is noted internationally both for its tradition of scholarship and for its adventurous pioneering of new approaches to the ancient world.

Key research areas

The Faculty's legacy of formal classical scholarship has been further enriched by a range of new methodological strategies that typically seek to combine the disciplines - history, archaeology, art and literature - in wide-ranging reassessments of fundamental aspects of life and culture in classical antiquity.

Areas of current research, in which seminars are held, are:

  • Greek and Latin literature (Prof C Austin, Prof J Diggle, Prof S Goldhill, Dr E Gowers,
  • Prof J Henderson, Dr N Hopkinson, Prof R Hunter, Dr H Morales, Prof SP Oakley, Dr L Pranscello, Prof M Reeve, Dr A Rogerson)
  • Philosophy (Mr N Denyer, Prof M Schofield, Prof D Sedley, Dr R Wardy, Dr J Warren)
  • History (Prof M Beard, Prof P Cartledge, Dr R Flemming, Prof P Garnsey, Dr C Kelly, Dr P Millett, Prof R Osborne, Dr J Patterson, Dr M Williams)
  • Art and archaeology (Mr H Hurst, Prof M Millett, Dr L Preston, Dr N Spivey, Dr C Vout)
  • Philology and linguistics (Dr J Clackson, Prof G Horrocks, Dr T Meissner, Dr R Thompson)
  • Interdisciplinary approaches to the ancient world (many of the above).
