  1. Princeton released a statement about their new language requirements in the classics department (update to my original post).
  2. How I Taught The Iliad to Chinese Teenagers.
  3. Profiles of Mary Beard continue to be delightful. The New York Times Magazine profiled the “Cambridge classics professor, best-selling author, television documentary series host and feisty Twitter star[.]” (NYT Mag also published the much-talked about saving-the-classics-from-whiteness piece earlier this year.)
  4. Here is Mary Beard on the question of statues and who we decide to honor. (What even are statues for?)
  5. Twin review of Hitz’s “Lost in Thought” and Adler’s “The Battle of the Classics.”
