Greco-Roman Lunch, a lunchtime series encompassing all aspects of Greco-Roman civilizations, is sponsored by the Classics Department and convenes roughly every other week. Througout the semester, graduate students and faculty from several of the university’s departments and programs (including but not limited to Classical Archaeology, Classics, History, History of Art, Judaic Studies, Medieval Studies, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Religious Studies, and digital humanities in ancient studies) meet for lunch, conversation, and an informal presentation by one of their number. A brief discussion period follows.
Participation in this colloquium provides a forum for participants to receive friendly and productive feedback on current research projects. Presentations are typically around 30 minutes long, leaving time for questions and discussion afterwards. These need not be final products; we also welcome works-in-progress or workshop-style presentations, depending on the presenter’s preference.
