Classics Work-in-Progress Workshop: Spring 2022

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 on Mondays at 4 PM.

Presentations are supplemented in the Spring by professional development topics and some external speakers. Events will be hybrid (in-person in Phelps 401, but simulcast via Zoom) beginning on February 14.
