Each year, the GSC selects as its Faculty Fellow one outstanding University of Pittsburgh colleague whose scholarship advances the Center's mission. Jacques Bromberg is Assistant Professor in the Department of Classics and a specialist in ancient Greek literature and history. As the 2019-2020 GSC Faculty Fellow, Dr. Bromberg  convened a yearlong speaker series entitled "Classics and the Global" dedicated to highlighting the ways in which the study of antiquity can inform the study of globalization, and vice versa. Speakers in the series will present public lectures throughout the year, and selected lectures will be published in the inaugural issue of Global Antiquities, a new open-access e-journal. This publication united the sources, approaches, and methodologies of Classical Studies, Ancient History, and Global Studies and aimed to spark conversations and collaborations between professionals in these and related fields.
