About the New Voices in Classics Lecture

The Department of Classics at the University of Toronto is pleased to present the New Voices in Classics annual lecture. This lecture aims to expand the boundaries of the discipline by amplifying both the voices of up-and-coming scholars in the field of Classics and ancient voices that are less often heard (including women, enslaved and colonized peoples, the socially or economically disadvantaged). The inaugural lecture will be given on February 11, 2022 by Mathura Umachandran of Cornell University.
