Ancient Studies

Colloquia Series

This bimonthly gathering seeks to provide a forum for faculty and students (graduate and undergraduate) of various aspects of antiquity to discuss areas of common interest, to learn about interdisciplinary projects of IU faculty, and to engage with scholars from outside I.U. whose work bridges multiple fields. While this is primarily an "in-house" series, we seek to bring in one outside speaker each semester to broaden our awareness of approaches to the ancient world.
