Episode #4 – Interview with Dr. Riemer Faber + Dr. Andrew Faulkner – Talking Classics @ U of Waterloo

By: Jim Bamboulis

I recently sat down with two pre-eminent Classical Studies Professors at the University of Waterloo, Dr. Riemer Faber and Dr. Andrew Faulkner.

Middle – Dr. Riemer Faber | Right – Dr. Andrew Faulkner

We talked about why Classical studies are still relevant in today’s uber go-go-go world, their respective inspiration to get involved in the Classics, what we can learn from the Classics when it comes to cultural tolerance and understanding, classical trips abroad that are open to Waterloo students and whether future ages will wonder at our own present world.

A fascinating discussion about travels, cultures, literature, languages the impact the Classics continue to have in our society today.
