Contexts for Classics (CFC) is an interdepartmental faculty initiative founded in 2000 that aims to rethink the discipline(s) of Classical Studies from various critical, historical, and pedagogical perspectives. CFC sponsors several events annually and emphasizes curricular offerings across the University that explore the relationship between antiquity and modernity and interrogate the construction of a Classical ideal.

Starting in Fall 2013, Contexts for Classics is affiliated with the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Michigan. Co-sponsors include the College of Literature, Science and the Arts, the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies, the Department of Classical Studies, the Department of Comparative Literature, and the Program in Modern Greek.
