Greco-Roman Lunch

Greco-Roman Lunch is sponsored by the Classics Department and is held bi-weekly, normally on the first and third (and sometimes fifth) Mondays of the month in the Fellows’ Room at Saybrook College. 

The invitation list comprises faculty and graduate students from the Departments of Classics, History, Art History, EALL, Judaic Studies, Religious Studies, and others. They convene at 11:45 for lunch followed by a presentation by one of their number. A presentation of up to 30 minutes is followed by questions. The focus of papers ranges freely from literary to archaeological to cultural. Lunch is provided free to those who are not on a meal plan.

Papers are currently invited for the Spring ‘18 Greco-Roman Lunch series.  We are looking for presentations on any aspect of the Greek and Roman world and its reception. Papers should be 30 minutes long, to leave about 15 minutes for Q&A. This invitation is open to both faculty and graduate students at any stage in their program. We are aiming for a good mix between faculty and students and among the various disciplines that study the Greco-Roman world at Yale. Presentations need not be polished conference papers–we are equally open to works-in-progress or workshop-style presentations.
Dates planned for the spring semester are:

5 February: Kyle Conrau-Lewis

12 February: TBA

19 February: Jennifer Weintritt

5 March: Tom Schmidt

9 April: Ramsay MacMullen

23 April: Irene Peirano Garrison
