Mass Humanities and Harvard Book Store welcome classicist Donna Zuckerberg--founder and Editor-in-Chief of Eidolon, a prize-winning online Classics magazine--for a discussion of her latest book, "Not All Dead White Men: Classics and Misogyny in the Digital Age." Zuckerberg dives deep into the virtual communities of the far right, where men lament their loss of power and privilege and strategize about how to reclaim them. By appropriating the Classics, these men lend a veneer of intellectual authority and ancient wisdom to their project of patriarchal white supremacy. Not All Dead White Men reveals that some of the most controversial and consequential debates about the legacy of the ancients are raging not in universities but online.
