The 2014 Boston Area Roman Studies Conference

Conference Registration Form

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 18, 2014.  To register for the conference, click here.

The 2014 Conference will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014, with registration opening at 3:30 p.m. and the program starting at 4:15 p.m. in Barristers Hall of the School of Law (765 Commonwealth Avenue, 1st Floor). For directions to BU and a campus map click here.
