University of Pittsburgh


Events

Each year the Department of Classics sponsors a series of lectures by speakers from other universities as well as from Pitt.

The department also organizes conferences or symposia on classical subjects every few years. In addition to its own events, the department may co-sponsor lectures with the Departments of History of Art and Architecture, Philosophy and History & Philosophy of Science.  Several lectures a year are co-sponsored with the Program of Classics, Philosophy and Ancient Science (CPAS) and three are co-sponsored with the local chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA).

The department also sponsors occasional lectures with other departments and programs, such as the Program in Cultural Studies and the Program in Asian Studies. Informal lectures are also given by faculty and advanced graduate students in the department.
