Scholarship and research are integral to the study of Classics and to the mission of our department. We understand scholarship in an inclusive sense that embraces teaching and learning at all levels. The members of our faculty (core and affiliate) practice research that results in scholarly talks and conferences and in publication by major presses and refereed journals; much of this research informs the courses they teach. Our students also engage in research, both individual and collaborative, both inside and outside of the classroom. The following are recent examples of the products of our research:
Professor Jorge Bravo has received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities for study at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
Prof. Polyvia Parara was the keynote speaker at the Greek Letters Day Celebration on Saturday, January 28, 2017, organized by the Hellenic Society Prometheas at the St. George Greek Orthodox church.
Prof. Parara presented at the 12th International Conference of Cretan Studies at Heraklion, Crete, on 21 to 26 September 21 2016.
Prof. Polyvia Parara has presented a paper on her new research project at the IASCC International Conference in Ermoupolis, Greece.
