Diversity in Imperial Rome: Contexts, Questions, Comparisons

Event Details

3:30 p.m.
University Club, Room 212
Talk by Prof Nandini Pandey, Classics: Rome was one of the longest-lasting and most ethnically heterogeneous empires the world has ever seen. How did the Romans think about diversity? How did they conceptualize their own multiculturalism and pluralism? How was their valuation of difference related to imperialism and consumerism, and what might we learn from their example? This talk explores racial and cultural difference in the ancient Mediterranean.
