The Department of Classics organizes and co-sponsors a number of events throughout the year to build community and enrich scholarship. In addition to inviting prominent speakers from around the world who are leaders in the field, the Department supports events by the Kaplan Humanities Institute Classical Receptions and Global Antiquities Research Workshops and by the Classics Undergraduate Advisory Board. Events include visits to Chicago-area institutions like the Field Museum, all-night marathon readings of classical texts, film screenings, trips to see in-person theatre performances, and even the occasional lamb roast on the lakefill.
