Welcome to Contexts for Classics! CFC is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary faculty consortium at the University of Michigan. We were founded in 2000 to explore the reception of Greek and Roman antiquity in different historical, critical, and creative contexts. Since 2013, we are affiliated with the UM Institute for the Humanities. 

Browse our website to find information about our mission, events we sponsor, classes we offer, faculty members who participate, our classical translations workshop, and resources for research in classical reception studies. We encourage you to submit proposals for funding and co-sponsorship from CfC for campus events related to our mission.
