The Student Affairs Interest Group (SAIG) of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) are pleased to present the inaugural SAIG/GSC Dissertation Lecture. This annual talk is intended to highlight the work of a senior doctoral candidate whose research features interdisciplinary work between the fields of archaeology and classical philology, and to support the student networks between these related fields.
As the first Dissertation Lecturer, Elizabeth Heintges, doctoral candidate at the Columbia University, will present "Forgetting Sextus Pompey: the bellum Siculum and Vergil’s Aeneid,” integrating both literary and material evidence into an analysis of two major moments in Roman Republican history.
The lecture will be held virtually at 5:00 pm EDT on Thursday, April 22, 2021. Please register in advance for this Zoom webinar.
