Professor Keith Bradley, 16th/17th March

On 16th and 17 March, Prof Keith Bradley from the University of Notre Dame will be visiting Sheffield. His visit is special, because Keith is not only a world-leading expert on Roman slavery, but he’s also an alumnus of the University of Sheffield (of the former Department of Ancient History, whose history we’ll be celebrating on 17 March). https://history.nd.edu/faculty/affiliated-faculty/keith-r-bradley/

Keith has kindly agreed to give a masterclass for postgraduate students on Friday 16 March. The topic of this masterclass is Hadrian and biography, taking its cue from Margeruite Yourcenar’s famous novel Memoirs of Hadrian. If you’d like to take part in the masterclass please send an email to Daniele Miano (d.miano@sheffield.ac.uk) by 10 March.

 

On the afternoon of Sat 17th March, there is a  Sheffield classics alumni lunch and talks event: all details & tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/university-of-sheffield-classics-alumni-event-and-exhibition-launch-tickets-43195285261
