The Boston Area Roman Studies Conference (BARSC) was instituted in 1995 to promote the study of Latin literature and Roman culture, to increase the visibility of these studies in the New England scholarly community and to provide a place for area Latinists and Romanists to meet, socialize, and exchange ideas. The BARSC is sponsored by the Department of Classical Studies and the Center for the Humanities at Boston University and is held annually in April. The conference is open to anyone interested and is free of charge. Following the conference is a dinner, and those wishing to attend must pre-register. The dinner charge is $30.00 ($20 for graduate students with school ID) and the registration deadline (for dinner only) is April 12, 2018. To register for the conference, click here.
