Wisconsin Studies in Classics
Established in 1982 with a generous bequest from Warren Moon, this series publishes books on classical art, archaeology, literature, and culture. We accept submissions in all areas of ancient studies, and are particularly eager to receive books with a focus on the following: the integration of material and literary culture, the integration of contemporary theory with ancient texts, classical art and iconography, and the art and archaeology of the Greek and Roman East.
Please send all inquiries to UW Press Assistant Acquisitions Editor Amber R. Cederström.

Reset in Stone
Memory and Reuse in Ancient Athens
"Persuasive, integrated, and innovative. It is very instructive and fresh to discuss changes that are meant to transform memory without being visible alongside visible and meaningful reuse. Rous’s enticing explanatory framework makes this possible."
The Play of Allusion in the Historia Augusta
“A valuable literary study that synthesizes a large, diffuse body of scholarship, integrating it in an intelligent argument about the literary milieu in which the Historia Augusta emerged. The Historia Augusta has long needed a study like this one.”
