Herodotus is called "the father of history," but his method of narrating the human past is unusual. Carolyn Dewald, Professor Emerita of Classical Studies at Bard College, will explore the paradoxes, ironies, and ambiguities inherent in Herodotus' construction of his Histories, not as signs that he did not quite understand the discipline he had begun, but rather as carefully thought-out approaches to what it means to "tell the past".
This talk is the Classics Department's annual Rumpakis/Dussin Lecture.
