Music and Memory in the Ancient Greek and Roman Worlds, co-edited by Naomi Weiss and Lauren Curtis, has just been published by Cambridge University Press! The volume explores, across chronological, geographical, and disciplinary boundaries, music’s role in discourses of cultural memory and commemoration in Greco-Roman societies. It’s been long in the making: the idea began years ago within the Department of the Classics, when Naomi was a visiting student and became firm friends with Lauren, who was in the graduate program here; the project then really took off as a result of a Radcliffe Seminar in 2017. You can read more about the volume on the Cambridge University Press website.
