New Approaches to Ancient Evidence (Mahindra Humanities Center Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshop, 2016–17)

This workshop is intended to foster discussion between students of all disciplines whose work relates to Greek and Roman antiquity. Discussion will focus upon theoretical frameworks whose promise extends to a broad variety of research projects incorporating literary, epigraphic, archaeological, and/or numismatic evidence from the ancient Mediterranean. Meetings will include conversations with Harvard students and faculty regarding practical approaches to independent research, as well as seminars with visiting scholars whose work showcases the potential for innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to the Classics. There will also be opportunities for workshop participants to present their own research. Graduate students of all departments and years with an interest in the classical world are warmly invited to attend.
