The Graduate Students of the Department of Classical Studies cordially invite you to attend the 2021 Brandeis AGRS Graduate Conference - Cracking Open the Contact Zone: Imperialism and Indigenous Interaction in Antiquity. This year's conference will be held over two days, April 9th and 10th from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM EST. The virtual format of this year's conference has allowed for wide participation from graduate students across the U.S. and abroad and includes papers spanning many cultures and time periods. We believe this will be an excellent opportunity to meet young researchers, hear about their work, and learn from each other.
