The Network for the Interface of Classics and Politics

The Network examines the relationship between contemporary politics (broadly defined) and classical rhetorical and oratorical debates.

Our aim is to bring scholars at any stage of their careers together with an interest in the how politicians communicate. We organise an annual conference in Liverpool for interested academics to share their latest research, discuss collaborations, and to foster an interdisciplinary community of scholars.
