Unprecedented world events call for a better understanding of the country we live in. Come and hear the leading minds in humanities and social sciences at Massey University discuss critical contemporary issues.

Whose community? What can the Ancients teach us about merging and mixing?

As the turbulent 21st century unfolds, we can look to the ancient Greeks and Romans when facing the challenges of living together as a democracy. As pioneers in participatory government they continue to speak to us about one of our world’s most contentious issues: how to accommodate migrants and other outsiders in existing communities.

Dr Anastasia Bakogianni and Dr David Rafferty will reveal how ancient practices can be a source of inspiration, as well as offering cautionary examples. Either way, ancient texts can provide us with an alternative perspective which can help us more clearly view our own problems.
