Event description

Description

MATERIA is a day-long workshop presenting new research in the area of the ancient book in the Roman World, broadly conceived. This event brings together six speakers from across the country who work on different aspects of the intersection of classical text and material culture to present work in progress. Each speaker will have a significant block of time to present his/her findings, with ample time for questions and feedback from the audience and fellow panelists. Audience members are encouraged to come for the length of the day, throughout which refreshments will be provided.

This event is organized with generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at MIT.
