In Response to: Who Owns the Past?

I agree that the classics are an artificial construct that many people find themselves outside of, due to the likely design or intent of the historically privileged.

Diversity in any ongoing critical scholarship of this subject is necessary and will bring new angles of inquiry and insight that may help advance all of our understandings of the field.

Whether “the classics” (however that notion may be defined now or in the future) will remain relevant as time continues, is still an open question — but the conversation is appreciated! Thanks to Dr. Peralta, PAW, and the University for facilitating this fresh chance to listen, learn, discuss, and share.
