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 Hallett has presented papers at an international conference on feminism and classics, and at a panel on the history of Wellesley College at the 50th reunion of her Wellesley College class.
