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 Executive Editor Raphael Kadushin.

Ctesias’ Persica and Its Near Eastern Context
“A pleasure to read. Waters opens new paths in Ctesian studies, showing that the Persica is not merely the product of a Greek playing literary games, but may actually have its origins in genuine documents from the ancient Near East.”
The Athenian Adonia in Context
The Adonis Festival as Cultural Practice
“Persuasively reinterprets the Adonia as a ritual that brought Athenian women’s dissenting voices into the public arena to critique male social institutions and values. This innovative work draws on an immense range of ancient sources—literary, documentary, artistic, and material.”
Virgil and Joyce
Nationalism and Imperialism in the Aeneid and Ulysses
“Demonstrates how Joyce’s complicated nationalism revolutionizes our present understanding of Virgil’s hesitant imperialism.”
