Hannibal Lectures started as a way to get people talking about the texts taught in Carthage’s core Intellectual Foundations seminars. Now they are among the best-attended academic events at Carthage.
Featuring Carthage faculty and scholars from around the country, Hannibal Lectures are a way for students and faculty to come together to discuss key texts from the Greek and Roman worlds through the Renaissance and into our modern era. “They are a vibrant conversation that keeps going from year to year,” says English and Great Ideas professor Seemee Ali, who founded the lecture series with Great Ideas and Philosophy professor Michael McShane.
Most Hannibal Lectures are held at 4:15 p.m. in the Niemann Media Theater. Refreshments are provided. All are welcome.
