Our second colloquium of the semester will be this coming Monday, Feb. 18 at 4:30 pm in the Classics Lounge.
The speaker will be Sinclair Bell, currently at the University of Manitoba, and a specialist in Roman art and archaeology.
His talk is entitled: "Identity: Why Do We Need It?" and should be of interest to a wide audience.
I encourage everybody to join us on Monday.
Sinclair Bell studied Classical Archaeology at the universities of Oxford, Edinburgh, and Cologne, receiving his Ph.D. in Classics in 2004. He has excavated at sites in Greece, Italy, and Tunisia. He is the editor of three volumes, including the forthcoming collection "Role Models in the Roman World: Identity and Assimilation," to be published in May by the University of Michigan Press. A fellow of the American Academy in Rome and the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst, he is currently Post-doctoral Fellow in Roman Archaeology at the University of Manitoba, where he is completing a monograph on Roman circus spectacles.
