Our Lecture Series

The Classical Studies department sponsors two lecture series every year (fall and spring). We invite leading scholars in Ancient History, Philosophy, Classical Literature, and Classical Archaeology to present their research on our campus and engage our students in conversations about Classical Studies. Our lectures are generously sponsored by the Kairos and Watkins funds in Classical Studies.
