Events, Student Awards, and Prizes, Archaeology Club, Facilities, and Places to Visit
Adelaide E. Hahn Memorial Lecture: Every fall, we invite a prominent Classicist or Archaeologist to speak at our Adelaide E. Hahn Memorial Lecture. Established in 2006, this lecture is aimed at a broader, but no less enthusiastic audience than the Earle Lecture held later in the academic year. We invite our classes to join faculty, students, and friends from the entire metropolitan area to hear and honor our speaker.
Josephine Earle Memorial Lecture: Every spring, we invite a prominent Classicist or Archaeologist to speak at our Josephine Earle Memorial Lecture. A celebrated event dating back to 1938, the Earle Lecture attracts faculty, students, and friends from the entire metropolitan area to hear and honor our speaker. See Earle Lecturers.
