The Classical Studies department would like to congratulate UWaterloo's very own Dr. Christina Vester and Brock University's Allison Glazebrook on the successful launch of Themes in Greek Society and Culture.
The book launch was held Friday, November 3rd at 4:30pm in the UW Bookstore and was attended by students, faculty, and fellow contributors.
Professor Andrew Faulkner, Director of the Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies, presided over the event and Christina and Allison each read passages from their book highlighting some unique features of the volume, while demonstrating a clear, unified understanding of Greek society and culture.
Covering the Bronze Age, as well as the Archaic, Classical, and early Hellenistic periods, Themes in Greek Society and Culture introduces students to central aspects of ancient Greek society. The volume brings together 19 expert contributors who explore the institutions, structures,
activities, and cultural output that formed the experience of living in ancient Greece.
