A Conversation with Dr. Maas on Thucydides — Rice Historical Review

"We should respect Thucydides’ objectivity and his relentless effort to record the facts correctly. We also have to respect the fact that he is working with the data he has so painstakingly assembled. He is not simply stating that the facts speak for themselves, and he points the facts in the direction that he thinks can best illuminate his analysis. He seeks objectivity and also seeks honesty. When we follow Thucydides and attempt historical investigation, we must be honest above all other things. Thucydides is one of the most relentlessly self-aware and honest political analysts I have ever read."

The Rice Historical Review just published our interview with Dr. Maas on Thucydides's History of the Peloponnesian War. Check it out here:

Dr. Maas is the William Gaines Twyman Professor of History at Rice University. His research interests are in ancient Greece and Rome, late antiquity and early Byzantium. Spencer: A political scientist, Graham Allison, used the phrase the “Thucydides Trap” to refer to the idea that war is always

Here’s why our lovely co-editor, Victoria Saeki-Serna, joined the RHR:

Rice Historical Review

In the wake of George Floyd’s death on May 25th, 2020 at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department, people from all walks of life began to look more carefully at a long and bitter history of racial injustice in the United States and across the globe. The Rice Historical Review is committed to encouraging the historical contextualization of our university’s founding. Our website homepage features an article, originally published in our Spring 2019 issue, where former Rice University undergraduate student Andrew Maust addresses “the current remembrance of [William Marsh] Rice, details his connections to slavery, and provides a recommendation to Rice University on how to address the history of its founder” among other important topics.

We hope that providing access to this article illuminates the history of our university’s founding with an authentic remembrance of the contribution of those who are often forgotten in common narratives of William March Rice.

Examining the Past and Future of the European Union with Dr. Carl Caldwell — Rice Historical Review

"I think there is more unity than there ever was, even from peripheral countries like Spain and Portugal that had bad experiences with the European Central Bank and European institutions during the financial crisis. While I don’t expect we are going to see massive moves toward political unification, I do expect we are going to see more consolidation of the European project of economic, regulatory, and financial unification--despite distrust and disgruntlement."

The Rice Historical Review has just published our interview with Dr. Carl Caldwell on the European Union!

Life in the Peace Corps: Morocco — Rice Historical Review

“And I remember one class, we were studying students who had gone on strike in Virginia. Basically, Black students protesting segregation had gone on strikes from their school for more than a year in either the 1950s or 1960s. He just took a moment and said that must have taken a lot of courage. He asked us “when was the last time you have ever done anything courageous?’”

The Rice Historical Review has just published our interview with Ben Jones, a Rice 2018 alum and member of the Peace Corps in Morocco. Read more about his experiences there and in the Rice History Department!

The full interview is available at ricehistoricalreview.org/short-form/Ben-jones/
