Classical Reception Seminar Series

The Cambridge Classical Reception Seminar Series (CCRSS) seeks to explore classical reception in all its dimensions and modalities.

Our events, which can cover any aspect of the reception of the ancient world, are designed to appeal to a wide interdisciplinary audience and interested parties from any department are warmly invited to attend. Seminars, consisting of an approx. 45-minute presentation followed by Q&A, are held several times a term – normally on a Tuesday or Thursday – at 17:15 in the Faculty of Classics (room may vary); there is usually also the opportunity to join the speaker for a drink in a social setting afterwards.

For further information, or to express interest in giving a paper at the CCRSS, please contact the new co-convenors: Zack Case (zc270@cam.ac.uk), Sofia Greaves (srg55@cam.ac.uk), and Nathaniel Hess (nh433@cam.ac.uk).

All welcome!

Seminars are held at 5.15pm in G.21, Faculty of Classics, Sidgwick Site, Cambridge.

 

The Schedule will be available soon.
