The Department of Classics presents a lecture by Barbara Borg titled "Family Matters: The Long Life of Roman Tombs." Borg, professor classics at the University of Exeter, is interested in the study of art and archaeology of the Greeks and Romans. She studies visual and material artifacts to contribute to modern understandings of Greek and Roman influences. She is the author of several articles and a book titled Crisis and Ambition: Tombs and Burial Customs in Third-Century CE Rome (2013). The lecture was made possible with support from the Grimshaw Gudewicz Foundation and the C.A. Robinson Jr. Lectureship Fund. The event begins at 5:30 p.m. in Smith-Buonanno Hall, Room 106, 95 Cushing St.
