‘Classical Studies’ refers to the study of the literature and society of the Mediterranean world dominated in antiquity by Greece and, later, Rome. Objects of modern study include archaeology (including domestic material items, artworks, and architecture), literature and cultural thought, and the political and economic realities of those societies. ‘Ancient Near Eastern Studies’ focuses on the same types of data, drawn from the region as far east as Persia (modern Iran), as far south as the Arabian Peninsula, and as far west as Egypt and the North-African coast. The Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies (CANES) collection brings together, in digital form, resources resulting from the research of University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty, students, and alumni.
