In addition to this seminar, Lorraine Pangle will be giving a lecture entitled “Homer, Educator of the Greeks (and Us)” on November 29. For more information on this lecture, please visit the event page.
Registration for the seminar is free and open to the public. However, because capacity is limited, advanced enrollment is necessary. This will be done primarily on a first come, first served basis, though preference is given to UCLA students and faculty members. Participants will be expected to read excerpts of Plato’s The Republic (which will be provided) before the seminar and to be ready to discuss them. A pizza lunch will be delivered at the end of the seminar. To enroll, please e-mail Professor Daniel Lowenstein at email@example.com.
