Ah, my old blog… I should have done this weeks ago, but- what can I say?
The 2nd annual Classics PG Colloquium will be held from 10am tomorrow (22 May). You may have noticed already the posters that I furtively pinned to Humanities noticeboards in the dead of night. Basically, this is an opportunity for Postgraduate research students within the Classics Dept to showcase their work to peers and members of the Faculty. If you’re an undergraduate thinking about doing research in the Classics, or a postgrad from another Dept simply wanting to find out whether we’re more or less clever than you, I think you may find it interesting.
We will be meeting in H344. The programme looks a bit like this:
10:00 ‘Maximian and the Old Age of the World’
10:45 ‘The role of the biblical Patriarchs in Philo of Alexandria’
11:45 ‘Subjugation, appropriation, emulation? Or, how Egypt captured Rome’
13:15 ‘Goatherds in Idylls’
14:00 ‘Modernist Visions of Piety: the Fate of Thoas in Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride’
It’d be lovely to see you there.
