The Department of Classics Graduate Student Colloquium was inaugurated in the spring of 2000 when Christopher Trinacty presented a chapter of his M.A. thesis ("A Poetics of Desire: a Comparative Literary Study of the Hylas Myth"). All departmental graduate students are invited to make a presentation (15-20 mins.) on some aspect of their M.A. research, such as for the thesis or presentation at a scholarly conference. The atmosphere of the Colloquium is informal, congenial, and collegial, and those attending may bring their lunch.
All Spring 2021 colloquia will take place on Fridays from 1:00-2:00pm (ending promptly for those attending CLAS 4/546A). They will be held on Zoom--please contact Dr. Courtney Friesen (email@example.com) for a link and password.
