PhD student Kelly McArdle has a new column published in online journal Eidolon. Eidolon describes itself as “making the classics political and personal, feminist and fun.” It publishes pieces about the ancient and modern world, pedagogy, pop culture, culture only classicists care about, issues in the field, and further topics.
