Updates to the COVID-19 Concerns at Brown

Members of the Classics @ Brown Community:

Due to recent updates to the University’s policies as it relates to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Classics Department has made the difficult decision to cancel all events for the rest of the academic year.  The health and safety of our community are the main concern for the department.  When events have been rescheduled, we will update our website and resume sending invitations via our mailing list.

Responding to the Growning COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Concerns

Members of the Classics @ Brown Community:

Due to recent updates to the University’s policies as it relates to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Classics Department has been encouraged to review our events and invitations to off-campus participants for the remainder of the academic year.  As such, we ask that any members of the public (including alumni/ae) consider their own health and also the wellbeing of others before deciding to travel to campus to attend Classics events.
