[CANCELLED] Classical Connections - IAS VF Public Lecture: Dr Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Princeton) "The Etruscan Negro: from Coin to Memory to Racial Politics"
OC 0.04

Dr Dan-el Padilla Peralta is Assistant Professor of Classics at Princeton University, where he is affiliated with the university's Center for Human Values and Program in Latino Studies. His work situates the religious and cultural history of the Roman Republic in dialogue with anthropology, sociology, economics, and comparative and global histories of slavery. In this public lecture, he will focus on the complicity of modern histories of Roman republican culture in the (re)production of colonial and postcolonial configurations of race.

The lecture is generously funded by the IAS.
