Forum Antiquum Lectures Spring 2022
Every semester, the Classics department of Leiden University organizes a series of lectures (the Forum Antiquum). The lectures are held every other week on Thursdays at 15:30. We invite both Dutch and international speakers and well-known experts and promising young researchers to speak about a topic of their choice. The lectures are open to everybody interested; registration is not required. Forum Antiquum is made possible by Prof. Ineke Sluiter’s Spinoza Prize.
