Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of Greek Paul Cartledge highlights the most important aspects of ancient Greek culture – religion, economics, politics, sexuality, slavery and freedom – through the histories of 11 cities. He looks at famous cities such as Athens and Sparta and lesser known ones such as Argos, Thebes, Syracuse in Sicily, and Alexandria in Egypt. Cartledge is the inaugural A.G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture at the University of Cambridge.
