Classics Students and Faculty Present at Union College Meeting


Visiting Assistant of Classics Professor James Wells and Winslow Professor of Classics Carl Rubino, accompanied by classics students Amanda Barnes '12, Kelsey Craw '12, Lauren Lanzotti '14, Kirsten Swartz '12  and Anna Zahm '13, traveled to Union College on Oct. 23 to speak at the annual Institute of the Classical Association of the Empire State.

 

Rubino gave a talk titled "Long Ago, But Not So Far Away: Star Wars and the Ancient World." Wells' presentation, "Rethinking Lyric," explored the possibilities for new insight offered by applying concepts from linguistic anthropology to the analysis of Greek lyric poetry.

 

The students gained some valuable "on-the-ground" experience of the field by meeting teachers from around the state, including Hamilton alumna Julia E. Brooks-Miller '04, who teaches Latin in the Rochester area.
