This project will explore the problematic past of the Classics and touch on its relationship with modern hate groups. It will seek to sketch the current public debate surrounding the Classics, as well the image curated within the Classics itself....The research in parts one and two will be deconstructive. They will point out the Classics’ wrongdoings and weaknesses in order to set up a constructive conclusion that considers the actions needed to ensure inclusivity in our classrooms. The current Classical image is not representative of the ancient world and its entirety; this de- and reconstruction of the Classics will foster not only a more inclusive environment, but it will also convey a more true teaching and understanding of the multicultural and multiethnic ancient world.
