Recently, a surprising group has taken up the mantle of explaining why the study of the ancient Greeks and Romans remains vitally important: the Far Right. Far-Right online thinkers present themselves as protectors of the Classics who are saving the cultural heritage of the West from socialjustice- warrior professors who secretly want to destroy it. In this panel discussion, Donna Zuckerberg explores what antiquity means to far-right online communities and what others can do to respond.
