Annual Classics Symposium
31 March 2017
9-10 March 2017
Classics had four of its students involved in the annual Inquiry@Queen's Undergraduate Research Conference:
two of our students did presentations, with the other two presenting their research in poster format (see photos below).
Anthea Morgan explored the question of "Why has Classical Drama been Foundational for 172 Years at Queen’s University?". This was the result of a directed research project on the history of classical drama at Queen's. While delving into course calendars, book lists, and newspaper articles in Queen's Archives, Anthea uncovered a wealth of data related to the history of our department and our professors' and students' involvement in the teaching and performance of Greek and Roman drama stretching back to the 1840s. In this poster she suggested why classical drama has always been so important at Queen's.
Anthea is seen here with her proud supervisor, Barbara Reeves.
Alysha Strongman's research focused on cataloguing and identifying coins in "The Diniacopoulos Coin Collection at Queen’s". This is a collection of Greek and Roman coins acquired by the Classics Department and Art Conservation in 2001 for research purposes.
Alysha is seen here with her proud supervisor, Cristiana Zaccagnino.
