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.
