This year's annual Fall lecture, presented by the Classical Association of Canada, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Waterloo, will be given by Prof. John Oleson from the University of Victoria. The lecture is titled Harena sine calce ("Sand without Lime"): Building Disasters, Incompetent Architects, and Construction Fraud in Ancient Rome.
To celebrate the recent publication of Belonging and Isolation in the Hellenistic World, a 'gala event' will be held in the evening of October 18. Featuring 18 essays by research associates of the Waterloo Institute for Hellenistic Studies, and edited by Sheila Ager and Riemer Faber of the Department of Classical Studies, this volume enhances our understanding of social (dis)connections in antiquity. The celebration will be preceded by a public lecture by Dr. Daniel Ogden, Professor of Ancient History (Exeter).
