Alright guys, it’s time to get excited about death.
Now death is a natural part of life, a part that can overcome even the greatest but can leave the weakest stronger than ever imagined. Gilgamesh taught us that if nothing else. But for those of us who didn’t learn enough from our discussion section, have no fear! The Classics Department is here! This year, the Graduate Student Conference has a special focus on Death and Mortality in the Ancient World. Fantastic.
Here’s a complete schedule:
9:30-10:15: Registration and Continental Breakfast
10:15-10:30: Opening Remarks
10:30-11:30: Panel 1 (Richard Hutchins and Reina E. Callier)
11:30-12:30: Panel 2 (Ronald Orr and Kristin Harper)
1:30-2:30: Keynote Address (Professor Maria Liston)
2:30-3:30: Panel 3 (William Smith III and Daniel Poochigian)
Kristin Harper will be speaking directly about Aeneas’ transformations after his experiences with death, Reina E. Callier is going to bring Ovid into the mix, basically magic.
