Wisconsin Studies in Classics

Laura McClure, Mark Stansbury-O’Donnell, and Matthew Roller, Series Editors

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 Executive Editor Raphael Kadushin.

See also the Classical Studies subject page, which includes related titles that are not a part of this series.
