The Classics Seminar is a discussion forum for academic staff, PhD candidates and students in Classics or similar areas of study and research. Students and staff alike can volunteer to present their ongoing research. If you wish to present or subscribe to the information bulletin, please contact Tor Ivar Østmoe who is responsible for organizing the seminar in the spring semester of 2022.

The Seminar also invites researchers from other universities and research institutions on a regular basis. Some papers are given in Norwegian (or other Scandinavian languages), some in English. Comments and questions may always be presented in either language.

The Classics Seminar is open to everyone interested in antiquity and its afterlife. Time and place: 16:15 PM. In the spring semester of 22 the seminar will be held with physical meetings or digitally via Zoom, or both (physical meetings with streaming via Zoom). If you have not received a Zoom link one day in advance of the seminar, please contact the organizer.
