UCL Ancient World and Classics Virtual Taster Day (20th May)

From the organiser…

Dear Students and Teachers,

the UCL Greek and Latin department invites you to the upcoming  UCL Ancient World and Classics Virtual Taster Day, to be held virtually on Wednesday 20th May, 2:00-3:30 pm

What can we learn from a Greek play? How does learning Latin help us to understand the modern languages of Europe and beyond? What can archaeological objects found in the Near East tell us about how people lived in the ancient world? At the upcoming UCL Ancient World and Classics taster day our lecturers will study closely these and related questions. They will give you a sense of what it is like to study Classics and the Ancient World at the undergraduate level at UCL.

During the taster day, you will learn about the degree-structure and the many exciting pathways you can follow. You will also learn about the departmental Greek play, organised and run by students and performed at UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre every year. You will listen to one 30 min long taster lecture by one of our departmental lecturers, Dr. Rosie Harman, providing you with a real flavour of what studying the Ancient World and Classics at the university level is like. You will also have the chance to meet (virtually) current undergraduates and ask them questions about their experience at UCL.

In addition to the taster day, our lecturers continue to offer taster lectures on demand via video link. If you are interested in organising one of these in your school, please get in touch with Elena Cagnoli Fiecconi (Outreach Officer and Lecturer in Ancient Philosophy) at e.fiecconi@ucl.ac.uk

Finally, if you are curious to learn more about some ancient readings that may help us to make sense of these difficult times, see here some suggestions from our lecturers.

Looking forward to meeting many of you at the taster day!

all best Dr. Elena Cagnoli Fiecconi
