Welcome to Classics

Rutgers Studies in Classical Humanities (RUSCH)

Rutgers University Studies, affectionately known as RUSCH, was founded in conjunction with Project Theophrastus and in time took on a life of its own. Today it focuses on the colleagues, pupils and successors of Theophrastus. In particular, it is dedicated to redoing Fritz Wehrli's Die Schule des Aristoteles/The School of Aristotle. Missing texts are being included, and the apparatus of variant readings and of parallel texts is being enlarged. In addition, an English translation is being added.

RUSCH was founded by William Fortenbaugh, who served as series editor from 1983 through 2017. In 2018 David Mirhady, a Rutgers PhD and now at Simon Fraser University, took over as series editor. RUSCH was originally published by Transaction; today the publisher is Routledge. A complete list of the series is given below.
