Edith Hall, Professor of Classics, King’s College London, a prolific author and frequent radio and television commentator, speaks as part of the Wolf Humanities Center's 2017-18 Forum on Afterlives, co-sponsored by the Department of Classical Studies and the Penn Museum. Professor Hall poses the question: why, especially in times of great social upheaval, should we turn to the ancient past? Resurrecting Aristotle’s notion of “disciplined recollection,” she explains how it can help us manage the challenges of our own day.
