Culture and Religion of the Ancient Mediterranean (CRAM)

The goal of the Culture and Religion in the Ancient Mediterranean Colloquium is to promote high-level, interdisciplinary dialogue among faculty and graduate students who deal with religion and culture in antiquity in the Mediterranean basin and west Asia, all rather loosely defined. CRAM meets monthly during the academic year. Each meeting lasts about an hour, and typically is centered on a pre-circulated paper. CRAM is currently administered by Classics.

Below you will find the CRAM dates and programming for the fall and spring of 2013-14. Please note, all events will take place on a Tuesday, from 12:00-1:00p.m. at the Joukowsky Institute, RI Hall Room 008, unless otherwise marked. Papers will be e-mailed out approximately two weeks ahead of the date indicated. If you have difficulties accessing the paper, please contact Carley Hansen-Decelles at  Light luncheon fare will be provided! Please come and enjoy!
