"Each year, at the Fondation Hardt in Vandoeuvres, the Entretiens sur l'Antiquité classique will be held, during which specialists, from different countries, will give lectures on a selected subject area. An enriching exchange will take place in the following discussions". With these words, Baron Kurd von Hardt, founder of the Fondation Hardt, introduced the first volume of the Entretiens, which appeared in 1954. Since then, 64 Entretiens (2017) have been held, followed by the publication of the lectures and discussions. The series continues to be published today.
The collection of the Entretiens de la Fondation Hardt sur l'Antiquité classique offers a panorama of research in the fields of Latin and Greek literature, ancient history and ancient philosophy. The choice of topics, dictated by current research trends in these fields, is determined by a scientific commission consisting of the most important specialists of the day.
