The Department of Classical Studies at Boston University is excited to accept papers for its 11th annual Graduate Studies Conference. This year, the conference will examine the question of marginalization in mythic narratives and religious life in the Greek city-states, the kingdoms of the Hellenistic Period and the Roman Republic and Empire. We will explore how the ancient Greeks and Romans – citizens and non-citizens, male and female, free and slave alike – sought to define who belonged, and who did not, in both their mythic narratives and religious practice. Our keynote speaker, Rebecca Futo Kennedy, will give a talk entitled “Suppliants at the Dionysia: Embracing Refugees in an Anti-Immigrant Athens." Registration is required. Please register online by Wednesday, March 20th.
