The APGRD is a research project based in the Classics Centre at the University of Oxford. It investigates the performance of ancient texts in any medium and any period, from Greek tragedy to Roman epic, from stage to screen, from antiquity to the present day.
A world-renowned international research centre, the APGRD has been at the forefront of classical reception studies for over fifteen years and is a pioneer in classical performance reception.
