Research in Classical Studies

The Open University leads the way in many areas of Classical Studies research, and in developing connections with related disciplines such as English Literature, Theatre and Film Studies, Art History and Religious Studies. Our research is ambitious, pioneering and forward-thinking.

We are proud of our success in producing research on traditional literary, archaeological, and historical topics, while we also play a leading role in shaping new and inter-disciplinary fields such as digital humanities, material religion and classical reception studies.
