The Department of Classical Studies at Boston University is committed to making the study of ancient Mediterranean cultures as open, equitable, and inclusive as possible. As part of Boston University’s broader commitment to anti-racism, we aim to show that the ancient world is available to everyone to study and enjoy, and we condemn the appropriation of classical antiquity as a tool of white supremacy, nationalism, and gender or class-based discrimination.
