This year the Center of Classical Studies (LEC – Laboratório de Estudos Clássicos, in Portuguese) of the Federal Fluminense University (UFF, Brazil) hosts its 1st International Seminar & Lecture Series.
The series will be held from July to December 2021 via Zoom. Seminars and lectures will take place every 3 weeks from July 7 to December 1, on Wednesdays, and normally will start at 3 pm (GMT-3).
We have invited 8 scholars from the USA, England, Scotland, New Zealand, Italy and Argentina, who will cover a great range of subjects in Classical Studies and show varied approaches to address the past.
It is free to attend and we welcome you all, but we ask that you please register in advance for each activity, or if you prefer you can register for the entire series (5 talks will be in English, 2 in Spanish, and 1 in Portuguese).
Certificates will be given to those who need them. The talks will be followed by a live Q&A session.
