As part of their COLL 400 capstone requirement, students in the Classical Studies department have organized the first of what is expected to be a recurring event, the Classical Studies Colloquium. Students enrolled in CLCV 401 with Prof. William Hutton chose the theme of the event, Spectacle & Cultural Reception, solicited and evaluated abstracts for presentations at the colloquium, and organized the program and publicity. One goal of COLL 400 is to encourage students to communicate the excitement of their research to diverse audiences. For that reason, the colloquium is open to the public and all are invited to attend on Thursday, December 6, 4-6 pm in Morton 220.
What follows is there description of the event and the program of speakers.
