Spring Programme of Events

We have now finalized the Institute's programme of events for the spring. Five events, all on Wednesday evenings, and starting at 7.30 pm. Our first event, on February 9, is a lecture by Professor Michael MacKinnon (University of Winnipeg), entitled "Rich Man, Poor Man: Reconstructing Social Status in the Ancient World from Archaeological Bones". This is followed, on February 23, by an evening with Greek Canadian novelist Nikitas Terzis, whose latest mystery thriller Bird of Prey is set in the international archaeological community of Athens.

On March 9, our third event is a lecture by Professor Rodney Fitzsimons (Trent University) who will speak on "Making an Archaic City: The Social, Political and Architectural Correlates of Urbanization at Azoria, East Crete". This is followed, on March 23, by a lecture from Professor James Murray (University of New Brunswick) on "Searching for Plato’s Academy: Post-war Efforts". Finally, on April 6, we will screen the Canadian movie The Child Prodigy / L'Enfant prodige.

We hope you can join us at the Institute for these events.

Best wishes,
Jonathan Tomlinson
Assistant Director
