January 23, 2017
All Day
University Hall 448


Please join us for one prospectus talk and one dissertation update from our graduate students, Katie Caliva and Scott Kennedy.  Each of these will make a 15-20-minute presentation followed by a 10-15-minute discussion.  Understandably, at this point all titles are “working titles” and are only meant to be informative.   

3:30-4:00:  Katie Caliva: "Prayer and Pragmatic Speech Acts in Greek Poetry" (Sarah Iles Johnston, Advisor)

4:00-4:30:  Scott Kennedy: "Athens before the war crimes tribunal: Libanios, Declamation 13" (Anthony Kaldellis, Advisor) Scott will talk about how Libanios wrote a historical declamation, condemning Athens for its crimes during the Peloponnesian War.
