- Friday, April 22, 2022
Research by three Roehampton classicists has been featured in a recent BBC History Extra podcast, presented by Matt Elton.
Dr Marta Garcia-Morcillo, Dr Yehudah Gershon and Dr Shushma Malik's project Twisted Transfers: Discursive Constructions of Corruption in Ancient Greece and Rome explores the issue of corruption in the ancient world, and how studying it can help us make sense of shady dealings in the 21st century.
The research exposes the ethics, immoral and abusive behaviour, collective values and the dark side of profit and power in ancient Greece and Rome. The podcast can be accessed here.
