Faculty of Classics


Cambridge Late Antique Network Seminar (CLANS)


CLANS provides an interdisciplinary platform for classicists, historians, archaeologists, and theologians working on Late Antiquity. Seminars take place on a roughly fortnightly basis and are scheduled for Tuesdays at 5.15 pm.  Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, these will take place digitally via Zoom for the foreseeable future.  Links will be circulated by email in advance of the individual papers.  The convenors for the 2020/21 academic year are Daniel Hanigan (drh56) and Rares Marinescu (rim32).
