Classics Work-in-Progress Workshop: Spring 2020

The Yale Classics Works-in-Progress(WIP) series is a forum for those working on classics-related research—conference papers, dissertation chapters, articles, etc. — to share and receive friendly and productive feedback. Presentations  typically last 30 minutes and are followed by informal questions and discussion, accompanied by refreshments. The WIP typically meets Monday at 4 PM in Phelps 401. 

Presentations are supplemented in the Spring by professional development topics and some external speakers, including the graduate elected speaker (in 2020 this will be Eleanor DIckey, on April 6). 

If you would like to present in the coming semester, please email with a short description (2-3 sentences) of what you would like to present.  Any student in their dissertation writing years is expected to present work in progress at least once a year; the WiP is a possible venue for that.
