Classics Department BU Today Articles

Recently, BU Today has written two articles about the Department of Classical Studies.

In one, they profile Chair Stephen Scully’s CL 305 Topics in Myth course, which focuses on various origin stories both mythical and scientific. We are very proud of this advanced mythology course and of Professor Scully’s interdisciplinary approach. Read the article here.

The second article gives context to the Portraits of Black Classicists exhibition, which came to BU in November accompanied by a lecture from Professor Michele Ronnick (GRS ’90), the curator of the collection and a Professor of Classics at Wayne State University. The photographic exhibit first opened in the Rubin-Frankel Gallery in the Florence & Chafetz Hillel House, and is now on display in the Howard Thurman Center for Common Ground, where it can be viewed through February.  The article can be found here.

Congrats to Professor Scully!
