What we've been up to lately

  • For four weeks in May, Dr. Carrie Weaver and 15 Pitt undergrads studied and traveled in Sicily through the Classics Department's Pitt in Sicily study abroad program. In the classroom, the students studied Greek archaeology and read works of ancient Greek literature that were directly connected to the island. On excursion, they circumnavigated Sicily and were able to experience first-hand many of the sites and objects that they learned about in class

  • This past June, Dr. Jacques A. Bromberg chaired a paper session at the second workshop on Conflict Resolution in Ancient and Modern Contexts: Theory and Genre at King’s College London (read about the workshop here). He was joined by colleagues from Colombia, Brazil, the UK, USA, Spain, and Germany in producing new research on how Classical literature exemplifies and showcases conflict resolution skills. In April, Dr. Bromberg attended the first workshop in Bogotá, Colombia, where he presented a paper entitled "Peace through Sport: Modern Lessons from Ancient Sources".

  • Dr. Nicholas F. Jones is now under contract to submit revised texts, translations, and commentaries for the recently inaugurated second edition of Brill’s New Jacoby (“BNJ2”). The first twenty-one entries will take him through a September 1, 2018 deadline, with the remaining (more substantial) authors to follow later on a new deadline.

  • Dr. Mae Smethurst Mae was invited by the Classics Department of the University of Kyoto to give two lectures - one on Euripides' "Medea", April 20th, and another on Sophocles' "Antigone", May 1tth, 2018.
