What Remains? Fascist and National Socialist antiquities and materialities from the interwar era to the present day
Friday 8th June 2018, 10:00-18:00. Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge
This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together a group of international experts, including historians of Germany and Italy, classicists, archaeologists and art historians, to explore the complex relationships between antiquity and materiality, both during and after Fascism and National Socialism. Our aim is to examine the shifting conditions of the reception of antiquity under dictatorial regimes, and the fate of fascist material legacies from the aftermath of the Second World War to the present day.
