Old artwork of a person


Classics graduate students first published an academic journal in 1989 entitled CERES: Graduate Academic Journal, based on papers from their second annual Graduate Students' Classical Conference held at Queen's in May 1989; Volume II was published in May 1990.     

CERES Volume I - May 1989 (PDF 9.2MB)                                  CERES Volume II - May 1990 (PDF 6.7MB)

After a quarter-century hiatus, CERES returned with a new volume, published on 06 November 2017; the first volume of the "revival" featured articles by both Graduate and Undergraduate Queen’s students from Classical Studies, Archaeology, Philosophy, Art History and other departments. A dedicated team of Classics graduate students worked very hard to bring you papers about seafaring in the works of Homer, ring composition in Latin poetry, gruesome symbolism in the Dionysian mystery cults, and Constantinian military policy in the Eastern Roman provinces.
