***Special Guest Episode on Classics and White Supremacy w/Curtis Dozier***

We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming for another special guest episode in a series where I converse with Classicists and Ancient Historians about either books or articles that they have published, their current research interests, or just unique classes and topics that they are teaching and exploring further. 

In today's special guest episode, I am joined by Dr Curtis Dozier, Assistant Professor of Greek and Roman Studies at Vassar CollegeHe is the producer and host of The Mirror of Antiquity, a podcast featuring classical scholars discussing the intersections of their research, the contemporary world, and their own lives. More importantly to our discussion, He is also the director of Pharos: Doing Justice to the Classicsa website devoted to documenting and responding to appropriations of Ancient Greece and Rome by hate groups online. We discuss some of the reasons how, as well as why, White Supremacists have taken to coopting Classical imagery to support their twisted world views.
