On Tuesday, November 13, the Classics Department, the All-Honors Program, the Religious Studies and Theology Department and the Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies (ICMS) hosted Anthony Kaldellis, PhD, professor of classics at Ohio State University. The event was a part of the Thomas M. Banchich Annual Lecture in Classics.
Kaldellis spoke about the influences of the Byzantine civilization on the classical Greek canon and its study today. Members of the Canisius community and a history class from SUNY Geneseo attended. Kaldellis was introduced by Kathryn Williams, PhD, chair of the Classics Department and Thomas Banchich, PhD, professor emeritus of classics.
A small reception followed. Kaldellis and ICMS held a well-attended Scholars-in-Action conversation later that afternoon in Loyola Hall discussing his new project: “A New History of Byzantium.” Visit the ICMS website for upcoming events.
