On February 28 and March 1, the eighth annual colloquium of the Theodore B. Guérard Lecture Series will address the subject of diversity in Classics, both in terms of the ways in which we explore the multicultural, multi-ethnic ancient Mediterranean and in terms of the structural elements that historically have constrained these approaches, as well as wider discussion on how to move the discipline (and the perception of the discipline) forward into a redefinition of Classics for the 21st century.

The event will be live streamed for those who cannot make it to Charleston. Check out the Department’s website for further information (http://classics.cofc.edu/classical-chs/2019-diversifying-classics.php)

Supporting Classics means a lot of things - advocating for the discipline and the humanities writ large; mentoring of current students; and for some, financially supporting programs.

The Department of Classics is participating in this year’s "Give To What You Love Campaign" from now until February 14. Especially noteworthy on our list of goals is cultivating contributions that can be directed towards our support of classics at the K-12 level via programming and teacher support initiatives.

We have great news to report - Allen Jackson, a generous friend of the department, has decided to issue us a challenge and will match the first $1,000 donated to the Classics Fund before February 14!

Pompeii - Parco Archeologico

New surprises in the Excavations of the Regio V. During these days a new house is coming to light, the Domus of Dolphins, a elegant and refined residence in front of the House of the Silver Wedding. Brightly colored frescoes have been found, including numerous details: a peacock, a parrot, a partridge and the dolphins that give the name to the house, which probably belonged to a notable of the city.
