Engagement to speak at Nottingham University

On 11 February 2014, Helen gave a paper to the Classics Department at the University of Nottingham, in association with the university’s Centre for Spartan and Peloponnesian Studies.

The seminar, entitled Wanderer, kommst du nach Sparta oder nach Stalingrad? Spartan ideals of self-sacrifice and German military propaganda’, formed part of the Department’s regular series of Classics Research Seminars.

An article based on this paper is forthcoming in a volume entitled Making Sacrifices: Visions of Sacrifice in European and American Cultures (Opfer bringen: Opfervorstellungen in europäischen und amerikanischen Kulturen), ed. Nicholas Brooks, Gregor Thuswaldner, Vienna 2014.
