The Classicizing Chicago Project

In contemporary Chicago, one can observe the influence of ancient Greek and Rome in the city's architecture, culture, theatre, and more. The Classicizing Chicago Project was undertaken by the Alice Kaplan Institute of Humanities and the Chabraja Center for Historical Studies, both at Northwestern University, to research and document this influence. Visitors can explore this research in a few different ways. On the site's homepage, visitors will find a link to two digital resources, ATLAS and the Bosher Collection. ATLAS features photographs, short essays, and videos that highlight the link between classical antiquity and contemporary Chicago. This collection may be browsed By Essays, By Engagement with Greek Sources, or By Engagement with Roman Sources. Meanwhile, The Bosher Collection is an extensive online database of materials related to performances of classical plays. The database is named after the late Kathryn Bosher, a classical studies scholar who played a central role in creating this collection. Finally, visitors can also check out a number of essays related to this project through the research tab.
