|Bernard Knox to Deliver Rouman Classical Lecture at UNH
The Professor John C. Rouman Classical Lecture Series, named for one of the University of New Hampshire’s most distinguished scholars and faculty members, was established in 1997 by the Christos and Mary Papoutsy Charitable Foundation to promote and enhance awareness of the Classics in New Hampshire, throughout New England, and beyond. Citing strong popularity of the Classics nationwide, Advisory Board Co-chair Mary Papoutsy stated, “The intellectual and artistic achievements of the ancient world are timeless, their lessons relevant to every facet of our daily lives, from science and literature, to politics and religion. The Classics will endure for as long as we continue to learn from them.” Topics explored each year by this series will cover a range of subjects within Greco-Roman civilization including mythology, literature, history, philosophy, art, and language, and feature lectures by internationally recognized scholars.
All lectures of the series are free and open to the public.
