The Classical Studies faculty engage in diverse research and participate in several interdisciplinary collaborations and international research networks. Current faculty research focuses on Archaic and Classical Greece, Republican and Early Imperial Rome, Roman Italy, classical historiography, Greek and Roman religion, performance, reception, and comparative texts. Consult our People pages for complete academic and research profiles of our faculty. Prospective graduate students should look at the Graduate Studies page for more information on graduate supervisors and research areas.
Faculty research projects, editorial commitments, and cooperative initiatives provide rich opportunities for both graduate and undegraduate students to gain hands-on experience and professional training. Classics professors are deeply committed to student involement in the research process and related professional activities, such as conferences, workshops, and community events.
Classical Studies maintains an institutional membership in the Canadian Institute in Greece, whose academic resources and accommodations are open to our students during research trips to Greece.
