Classics and Ancient History Research Seminars & Classical Association (South-West Branch) Lectures

Our weekly research seminars cover a wide range of topics within the literature, history, art, archaeology, society and culture of the ancient world. Papers are given by members of the Department or by visiting scholars, in front of a large and friendly audience mostly consisting of staff and postgraduate students, though everybody is welcome to attend and admission is free. The papers are followed (or punctuated) by informal discussion, and refreshments are served afterwards. For further information, directions etc., please contact Prof. Matthew Wright ( This list also includes lectures arranged by the Classical Association: these are aimed not just at scholars but also at a wider audience including students, pupils at local schools, and members of the general public. For further information on CA lectures and other events, please contact Prof. Lynette Mitchell (
