On Feb. 22 Professor Alison Keith of the University of Toronto will be presenting a CMRS Colloquium entitled, "Imperial Leisure: Love and Luxury in Roman Poetry," focusing on the poetry of Propertius.

Professor Keith, who is actively involved with the UofT Women and Gender Studies Institute, has also agreed to lead an informal luncheon discussion focusing on the current state of the discipline — Classics but, more broadly, the Humanities — for women. This session is intended mainly for our female undergraduate majors and graduate students, but all are welcome, including faculty. The luncheon will be held at the faculty club, beginning at 12:00, on Thursday, Feb. 22.

To give us an idea of how much interest there might be in such a session, could you please send a note to Carolynn Schmidt ( ) *by* *February 2nd* indicating that you would like to attend.

Professor Keith is currently at work on a monograph on Propertius. To learn more about her research interests, click here.
