Libraries and museums

Lectures, seminars, workshops, and colloquia

There are many public lectures sponsored by the Department each year, including several James Loeb Classical Lectures given by distinguished scholars invited from outside the University. In alternate years the Carl Newell Jackson Lectures bring an eminent scholar to deliver four lectures which are subsequently published as a book; occasionally the Lectures are replaced by a Colloquium.
