Classical Studies Program Presents
Talking Herodotus: Celebration of Carolyn Dewald's Herodotus Book 1
Wednesday, November 30, 2022
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm EST/GMT-5
Carolyn Dewald (Bard) with James Romm (Bard) and Rachel Friedman (Vassar)
There are few authors more central to Greek history than Herodotus, whose nine books of Histories
) set out not only to describe the conflict between Greece and the Persian empire but also to discover its origins. And there are few scholars whose work has been more central to our understanding of Herodotus than Carolyn Dewald, whose commentary on Book 1 of the Histories (co-authored with Rosaria Munson) has just been published. Professor Dewald has been working on this commentary since she arrived at Bard (2003-4) and is delighted to have finally finished it. She still finds him (aka the "Father of History") amazing and will be equally delighted to discuss how remarkable Herodotus is with all of you who have time to come and take part in the conversation. Professor Dewald will be joined by James Romm of Bard’s Classical Studies Program and Rachel Friedman of Vassar.
