“Twisted Transfers”: Discursive Constructions of Corruption in Ancient Greece and Rome

Project Details


The project (co-funded by the AHRC and the DFG) explores notions of corruption in discourse in Graeco-Roman Antiquity that move beyond the definition of corruption in law in order to investigate their interaction with specific cultural, political and economic contexts. By concentrating on the law courts of classical Athens to the ethics of Byzantine diplomacy, the project will identify the influence on the formation of later discourses in Western societies today.
