New Directions in Classics V

The Department of Classics’ New Directions in Classics series began its fifth season this September.

The series began September 24, 2021 and will run to March 18, 2022. The series will be hosted on Zoom and in person*.

Once again, we would like to thank donors to our University of Winnipeg Foundation “crowd-funding” campaign. If you would like to support the series, please consider visiting the campaign page.
