Book abstract: This landmark collection looks at the role reception plays, or could play, within the modern discipline of classics, and presents a wide variety of viewpoints on its value, use and theoretical underpinnings.Contributions by scholars from Europe, the UK, and the USA illustrate a range of different approaches and methodological commitments, and employ material from many different fields, from translation studies to the visual arts, and from politics to performance. Each chapter constitutes a theoretical exploration or a demonstration of the productive use of reception for the discipline of classics, or both. The collection is framed by a provocative position statement from William Batstone and a response by Duncan Kennedy.The volume as a whole offers readers an enriched theoretical understanding of reception and its uses, and makes the case for reception constituting a vital part of classics in the future.
