Classics Workshops

The Department of Classics is pleased to announce the inauguration of the “Classics Workshops,” a series of in-house lectures and discussions presented by members of our department. Designed to facilitate feedback from colleagues, these workshops are opportunities for students and faculty alike to present chapters in progress, practice conference papers, and try out new ideas. Doctoral candidates are especially encouraged to use the workshops as self-imposed deadlines for completing chapters.

The workshops are free and open to the public. We extend a special invitation to our colleagues in the humanities, so as to bring our work to a wider audience and simultaneously benefit from the wide variety of perspectives available to us here at UF.

Workshops are held in 115 Dauer Hall. Feel free to bring a brown-bag lunch.
