The Department of Philosophy and Classics, University of Ghana, in collaboration with the Department of Classics, University of Ibadan and the Department of Classics and Philosophy, University of Cape Coast, will host the conference “Classics and Global Humanities” from 11th to 12th October 2018. The conference is the first of its kind to be hosted in Ghana, and coincides with the 70th anniversary celebrations of the University of Ghana.

The departments of Philosophy and Classics were both created in 1948 as foundation units of the Faculty of Arts in what was then the University College of the Gold Coast. In 2010 these units merged into a Department of Philosophy and Classics.  The current head of department is Dr Martin Odei Ajei.
