On April 11-13, 2018, a nearly thirty-year tradition of community engagement with Classical scholarship at Washington University will be honored in a three-day public symposium.
Thanks to the generosity of John and Penelope Biggs, a prominent scholar in Classics has visited Washington University in St. Louis each spring since 1990. The Biggs Family Residency in Classics (previously known as the John and Penelope Biggs Residency in Classics) has included lectures and conversations in a variety of settings, with participation by Washington University students and faculty and members of the community. On April 11th-13th fifteen former Biggs Residents in Classics will return for three days of scholarship and fellowship. The event is free and open to the public.
