dc.description.abstract What should history be "about"? The long-term movement of DNA-carrying peoples and their economic development, or the crises of a given president or prime minister. Ancient history and its narratives shaped much of what we think of as history, so this lecture will use Greco-Roman examples to think through these issues and show that the title of the lecture, though seemingly an obvious fact, is actually a daring proposition for a historian to utter. en
