Greco-Roman Lunch

Greco-Roman Lunch is sponsored by the Classics Department and convenes roughly every other week in the Fellows’ Room at Saybrook College. The invitation list comprises faculty and graduate students from the Departments of Classics, History, Art History, Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations, Judaic Studies, Religious Studies, and others. Gatherings convene at 11:45 for lunch followed by a presentation by one of the participants. A brief discussion period follows. The focus of papers ranges freely and explore every aspect of the Greco-Roman world. Lunch is provided free to those who are not on a meal plan.

Presentations should be approximately 30 minutes long, in order to leave about 15 minutes for discussion. Likewise, presentations need not be final products; we also welcome works-in-progress or workshop-style presentations as the presenter prefers.

We ask that those interested send a working title and a brief (two sentences) description of their intended presentation to by September 1, 2019. Talks will be on select Mondays, beginning in mid-September. For scheduling purposes, applicants should indicate the month or period during which they would prefer to present.
