The event features Professor Craig Williams of the Department of the Classics, who will be discussing his latest research project, "Orpheus Crosses the Atlantic," a study of ancient Greek and Roman influence on the indigenous peoples of colonial New England.  Most recently, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) awarded Professor Williams a 2018-2019 Fellowship in support of this project.
