2023-24 University of Toronto Mississauga Annual Classics Seminar Series: "Centre and Periphery"
The Dynamics of Violence in the Late Roman Republic: From the Periphery to the Centre, and Back Again
Dominik Maschek, Professor of Roman Archaeology, University of Trier
Professor Maschek is Professor of Roman Archaeology. His main areas of expertise are: architecture, art and material culture in Italy and the Roman provinces, the economic importance of Roman building projects, Roman architectural decoration, Roman building techniques and design practices, urban and landscape archeology of the Mediterranean and the Roman north-west provinces with a special focus on excavation, geophysical prospection, GIS modeling and virtual reconstruction, battlefield archaeology, Roman and Italian sanctuaries, Roman sculpture and portrait art, and archaeological methodology and theory.
The theme for this year's UTM Annual Classics Seminar (UTMACS) is centre and periphery. The speakers will challenge and explore this topic from various perspectives. For those who have not yet attended a UTMACS seminar, the sessions are in two parts, consisting of (1) a lecture (1:10–approx. 2:40 pm) followed, after a short break, by (2) a seminar-style discussion (3–4 pm) that is centred on the ‘focus item’ specified by the lecturer.
Professor Maschek's talk will take place on Friday, January 26th, 1:10PM to 4:00PM, at UTM in CDRS, Maanjiwe nendamowinan 3230, and broadcast live via Zoom.
Zoom link and readings will be circulated one week in advance.
