The Late Republic Populism(s), Power Structures, and Interpretative Frameworks - 02-03-04/05/2020, O

Georgy Kantor created a stimulating list of reading for quarantine, “40 books on Roman History”. Liv Yarrow responded by highlighting via twitter women who have contributed to the topic particularly women writing on the late Republic and Augustan age. This led to many replies suggesting further names and highlighting of work of the WCC (UK) to create and maintain Wikipedia pages for female scholars in our field. In this context, David Rafferty brought up the importance of German scholarship for the field.
