Classics Retold: Celebrating Classical Reception from Aldus Manutius to William Morris

Join the 18th and 19th century Graduate Research Cluster, the Classics, Medieval, and Early Modern Studies Group, and UW Special Collections on Wednesday, April 4th for a hands-on rare books session, featuring translations, adaptations, and artistic responses to Greek and Latin literature from the sixteenth century to today. As part of "Whan that Aprille Day" (the annual celebration of old, dead, and undead languages and literatures), come explore the continued material legacy of classical texts and their retellings across different cultures, languages, and times, and familiarize (or re-familiarize) yourself with UW's Special Collections holdings.
