Current Research Projects in Classics

In recent years the horizons of the discipline have expanded greatly, and our department is playing its part in the resulting renewal and reinvigoration. Thematically, the interests of staff and research students range back and forth across traditional boundaries — between Antiquity and the Middle Ages, between paganism and Christianity, and between the Graeco-Roman Mediterranean and the barbarian world beyond, including the Atlantic West and Ireland in particular. In terms of focus and method, we are reasserting the primary importance of the study of languages and texts: historical linguistics, philology, palaeography and manuscript studies.
