"Unlike Odysseus, Classics Club did not get blown off course by our three-day storm. We are still meeting today at 4:30 in 301B to enjoy some food and suffer-- er, I mean revel in? an exquisite Made For TV rendition of The Odyssey.

We really hope to see you all there. Sorry for the lateness of the announcement. We'll have more updates to you in a more timely manner next time." -J. Graham
When is the first meeting for the classics club?

This Wednesday, October 6, Dr. James Newhard, Professor of Classics, will present his Sabbatical Lecture, “Classics: Current Challenges, Future Directions.” Here are the details:

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
5:00–6:00pm
Randolph Hall 301A
It will also be available via Zoom (Message us for the link!)

In recent years, popular opinion has suggested that classics (and traditional humanities fields in general) are anachronistic and ill-suited to address the problems of the 21st century. This has translated into national decline in the number of students majoring in these fields and/or studying pre-modern languages such as Greek and Latin. Dr. Newhard will review the state of the field and frame these issues within the constructs of resiliency and adaptation. He suggests that while systematic adaptations are needed wholesale systemic collapse is not an inevitable conclusion. Rather reacting to declines or perceptions to existential threats, applying lessons from successful initiatives and programs is a strategy for progress that is reflective on past practices, yet embracing of adaptations and transformations.

Congratulations to Dr. SK on a new publication!

Dr. Sterrett-Krause has just published a chapter in Leptiminus (Lamta) Report No. 4: The East Cemetery: stratigraphy, ceramics, non-ceramic finds and bio-archaeological studies, edited by Nejib Ben Lazreg, Lea M. Stirling, and Jennifer P. Moore. This 2-volume archaeological report appears in the prestigious Journal of Roman Archaeology Supplementary Series, no. 110. The book reports on excavations of a large Roman and Byzantine (Christian) cemetery from the town of Leptiminus, Tunisia; Dr. Sterrett-Krause’s chapter includes primary publication of the glass from the excavations and an earlier survey of the city. She also analyses the types of glass vessels found at the cemetery, provides evidence for dating the vessels and their use, and proposes that Christian residents of Leptiminus may have used similar rituals of commemorating the dead as their pagan Roman forebearers. CofC alumni Sarah Legendre ‘17 and Colin Shields ’20 assisted Dr. Sterrett-Krause with this work.

The Leptiminus East Cemetery excavations are among the first in North Africa to study such a wide range of archaeological evidence from modern stratigraphic excavation: tomb markers and architecture; ceramics; glass vessels; coins; human skeletal remains; animal bones; and botanical data. This kind of work takes a huge effort: 16 authors from five countries; dozens of excavators, illustrators, and research assistants; five seasons of excavation and field study; and 12 years of post-excavation research, review, writing, and editing! The combined research gives a rich picture of human activities at the site of Leptiminus’ East Cemetery over more than 4 centuries and offers insights into the nature of death—and life—in an ordinary Roman town.
