Berlin Family Lectures 2023 With Acclaimed Classicist Mary Beard
The Berlin Family Lectures 2023 will challenge some assumptions we may have about Classics. What do we mean by Classics, and what do we hope to get out of it? These lectures puncture some of the myths of the subject, both ancient and modern. In exploring the fun, the dangers, and the heady uncertainties that Classics brings, Mary Beard argues that it can help us to think differently, to look at the world with new eyes, and to understand better where our own assumptions come from.

Mary Beard
Acclaimed Classicist and Original Thinker @University of Cambridge
Mary Beard is one of the most original and best-known classicists and is distinguished as an English scholar of ancient Rome who shares her knowledge broadly on the BBC and in the classroom. She is a professor emerita in Classics at Newnham College within the University of Cambridge; the classics editor of The Times Literary Supplement, where Beard writes a frequently published blog called “A Don’s Life;” and a frequent host of BBC broadcasts about Pompeii, ancient Roman history, and historic figures such as Julius Caesar and Caligula. In 2018, she became Dame Commander of the British Empire for her services to the study of classical civilizations. Among many honors, Beard received the Wolfson History Prize in 2009 for her book Pompeii: The Life of a Roman Town (2008), the Bodley Medal in 2016 for her outstanding contributions to the world of books, and honorary degrees from Oxford University, Yale University, and University of St. Andrews, among others.
