Who’s Revitalizing Homer?: The Relevance and Risks of Classical Reception Today

John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Theater

Join us for a lecture by Dr. Donna Zuckerberg, classics scholar and Editor-in-Chief of Eidolon. After the lecture, stay for a book signing of Dr. Zuckerberg's Not All Dead White Men: Classics and Misogyny in the Digital AgeCopies will be available for purchase on-site through the Legion of Honor's museum store.

Recently, a surprising group has taken up the mantle of explaining why the study of the ancient Greeks and Romans remains vitally important: the alt-right. Alt-right thinkers present themselves as protectors of the Classics who are saving the cultural heritage of the West from social-justice-warrior professors who secretly want to destroy it. In this lecture, Dr. Zuckerberg explores what antiquity means to far-right online communities and what others can do to respond.

Ticket Information

Starting October 19, 2019, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco will offer free general admission every Saturday for all residents of the nine Bay Area counties.
