Where: Theatre

What do ancient Greece and Rome have to do with Newfoundland? Dr. Luke Roman from the Department of Classics of Memorial University will explore the presence of Greco-Roman antiquity in the history and cultures of Newfoundland and Labrador. This voyage through unexpected corners of the Province's history will include some interesting stops along the way: the teaching of Latin in the schools; Wilfrid Grenfell's admiration of "the Greek perfection of body"; the appearance of Dido, Queen of Carthage, in the annals of Newfoundland lexicography; and the fierce attacks on rivals waged in print by John F. Morris, editor of The Register and Professor of Literature and Classics at St. Bonaventure's College.
