Ancient Exchanges

Ancient Exchanges is an online journal devoted to literary translations of ancient texts. Founded by Adrienne Rose in collaboration with Aron Aji, the journal is supported by the University of Iowa’s Department of Classics and MFA program in Literary Translation. The journal is an intervention born in response to the experiences of exclusion, limitation, and gatekeeping within the field of Classics. In contrast with the historically narrow perspectives of its field, Ancient Exchanges is a journal with a global perspective.
