9780801878893: The Culture of Classicism: Ancient Greece and Rome in American Intellectual Life, 1780-1910

Debates continue to rage over whether American university students should be required to master a common core of knowledge. In The Culture of Classicism: Ancient Greece and Rome in American Intellectual Life, 1780–1910, Caroline Winterer traces the emergence of the classical model that became standard in the American curriculum in the nineteenth century and now lies at the core of contemporary controversies. By closely examining university curricula and the writings of classical scholars, Winterer demonstrates how classics was transformed from a narrow, language-based subject to a broader study of civilization, persuasively arguing that we cannot understand both the rise of the American university and modern notions of selfhood and knowledge without an appreciation for the role of classicism in their creation.

From the Publisher:

"Caroline Winterer's book shows that the American colleges of the nineteenth century harbored a lively, if limited, intellectual life. Her precise and ingenious research reveals that the classical tradition was alive and well in the dusty classrooms and ornate auditoriums where students read texts, studied history, and acted in Greek and Latin plays. Winterer recreates this lost world in three dimensions and full color. The Culture of Classicism has much to offer classicists and literary scholars as well as historians of American culture and education."—Anthony Grafton, Princeton University

"This is a fully researched, clearly written, and eminently valuable contribution to the fields of American intellectual history, the history of American higher education, and the history of classical scholarship."—Ward W. Briggs Jr., University of South Carolina

About the Author:

Caroline Winterer is an assistant professor at Stanford University. She is also the author of the book, The Mirror of Antiquity: American Women and the Classical Tradition,1750-1900 (Cornell University Press, 2007).
