Arts & Science Festival 2014

Dr Elena Theodorakopoulos presents a special talk about a new project revitalising the teaching of Latin and Classics in schools in Birmingham and the Midlands with support from the charity Classics For All.

The talk accompanies an exhibition displaying entries to the Birmingham and Midlands Classical Association’s Multiculturalism in the Ancient World competition in which local school pupils designed posters showcasing the ways in which classics is accessible and relevant in the modern world – particularly in our local community.

This event is presented as part of Arts & Science Festival 2014, a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus. For details of the full programme, visit: www.birmingham.ac.uk/artsandsciencefestival.
