Classical Studies Senior Presentations

Add to Calendar1:45 pm – 5:00 pm

Did virginity as a practice create a suffocating or rather liberating experience for women in antiquity? How was virginity perceived differently by pagans and Christians in the Roma period? Was love perceived by the ancient Greeks and Romans as a postivie force or rather a destructive force? How large was the wealth gap among the Romans? What did the Romans put on their dinner tables and what tableware did the Romans use? Does the image of Roman soliders in the popular media match their real image in antiquity?

Curious about these questions? Come to hear the presentations of the graduating seniors of Classical Studies. #Academic The event is free and open to the public.
