Please join the Department of Classical Studies as it celebrates the Asian Centennial at William & Mary with a talk by Professor Georgia Irby on the Greek and Roman knowledge of and interactions with India, China, and Sri Lanka. Long-distance exchange was complex, from commercial links (along the Erythraean Sea and the Silk road) to philosophical cross-pollination and diplomatic embassies. Greek and Roman thinkers were fascinated by the peoples at the edges of their world, and they understood these distant peoples imperfectly, giving rise to utopias, dystopias, and fanciful hybrid-folk.
