In the spring of 2004, the Classics Department, with the generous support of the Grimshaw-Gudewicz Foundation, inaugurated a forum for graduate students to present work in progress to the community of scholars studying the ancient world at Brown. Traditionally, all symposia are held at noon in the Classics Department Seminar Room, located in Macfarlane House. The Classics Department Symposiarchs, with the help of their peers, organize and execute all symposia.
The current Classics Department co-symposiarchs are Ella Grunberger-Kirsh and Alvaro Pires.
