They also include the piazza and garden named in her honor in 2009 by the Italian town of Ciciliano in Lazio, whose territory she had identified as the ancient municipality of Trebula Suffenas. Drawing on reminiscences from those who knew her as well as archival materials and an unpublished manuscript by Taylor herself on “Intolerance and Racial Differences”, I seek to locate Taylor, her accomplishments, and her global legacy today in a variety of different, less glamorous “elsewheres.”</em></p> Judith Hallett Copyright (c) 2021-01-30 2021-01-30 3 1 53 Digital Roundtable: Feeling and Classical Philology https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/57 <p>Constanze Güthenke’s latest book, <em>Feeling and Classical Philology: Knowing Antiquity in German Scholarship, 1770–1920</em> (Cambridge: Cambridge Uni­versity Press, 2020), makes a major and distinctive contribution to the study of German classical scholar­ship. We have decided to mark its publication by inviting three distinguished scholars in the field to respond to its key findings and interpretative insights. This digital roundtable is intended as an early contribution to the debate on a study that will warrant much further attention over the years to come.</p> <p>LC<br>FS</p> Lorraine Daston Sotera Fornaro Stefan Rebenich Copyright (c) 2021-02-26 2021-02-26 3 55 88 Necrophilia https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/56 <p><em>Constanze Güthenke’s </em>Feeling and Classical Philology<em> (Cambridge, 2020) prompts wider reflections on the balance between empathy and distance, and between personality and context in classical scholarship.
