Classics Students Present at Annual Parilia Conference


Students and faculty in the Classics Department participated in the annual Parilia conference, held this year at Skidmore College on April 21.  Each year the Classics Departments from Hamilton, Skidmore and Union Colleges come together in late April for an undergraduate research conference.

Hamilton’s three student presenters included two senior Classics majors and a first-year prospective Classics major student. Presenters and their projects were: 

Rebecca DeTurk '17: "Motherhood and Martyrdom: Was Perpetua a Good Mother?"

Christina (Tina) Naston '20: "Il Gran Desio: The Appropriation of Greek Pederasty in Renaissance Italy"

Elizabeth (Beth) Prescott '17: "Thiemo: Bishop, Crusader, and Martyr"

The Parilia conference is named after a Roman rural spring festival celebrated on April 21.
