Several Hamilton students and faculty members attended an annual undergraduate classics research conference on April 17. Each year the conference is hosted by Hamilton, Union College, Skidmore College or Colgate University. Union was this year’s host.
Hamilton, Union and Skidmore were each represented by three students who presented papers at the day-long conference. Colgate did not attend this year.
Hamilton was represented by seniors Emma Zanazzi, who presented “Was Plato in a Frat? The Ancient Greek Symposium and Modern Fraternity Culture;” Mackenzie Leavenworth, whose paper was titled “The Music of Miklós Rózsa and the Rise and Fall of the Roman Epic Film;” and Jack Boyle who presented “The Origin of Famine: Amartya Sen and Ancient Rome.”
