Description

Charlotte Roueché, ICS/KCL

This year marks the centenary of the Peace Conference held in Paris over many months to establish a new world order in the aftermath of the First World War. Those attending the conference were not only statesmen and civil servants, but also academics and intellectuals, unembarrassed to play a role in public affairs. Many of them were classical scholars - something which seems surprising to us now; the aim of this lecture is to tell the story of several such individuals, and also to consider how the scholars of today can - and should - contribute to current public discourse.
