triennialA celebration of Classics

University of Cambridge

25th - 28th July 2011

You can listen to and download the plenary lectures from the 2011 Triennial Conference here:

The Celebration of Classics saw a remarkable line up of international scholars brought together in a novel format for such an event. Besides very distinguished plenary lecturers and two outreach evenings with well-known figures from the media and literary world, the centre of the event was a set of seminars where leading classicists presented their cutting-edge work in a seminar format with extensive opportunities for discussion (each paper had at least 45 minutes for comment and questions). Each day had only two such seminar slots, leaving plenty of time for debate as well as meeting old and new friends.
