On Thursday 8 November, Grégory Bonnin (Bordeaux 3—Ausonius) examines Athenian imperialism in the Aegean

Alas, the venerable Institut Ausonius thought of this great image first

This coming Thursday (8 November 2012) at 4 PM  the Rutgers Classics Graduate Student Association and the RU Department of Classics welcome Dr. Grégory Bonnin (Université Michel de Montaigne—Bordeaux 3 & the Institut Ausonius). He will be speaking on the topic of the Aegean islands under Athenian hegemony in a lecture entitled, “Is the Athenian Empire Controlling the Market? Megara and Melos at the Heart of Athenian Economic Ambitions.”

Dr. Bonnin received his doctorate in September 2012 from Université Bordeaux 3—Ausonius, writing a dissertation under the direction of Professor Patrice Brun on Athenian imperialism in the Cyclades (478-338 BCE). Among Bonnin’s publications are “Mélos face à l’appétit athénien (426-416 a.C.): à propos de la faim mélienne d’Aristophane” in REA (=Revue des études anciennes) for 2010, and a contribution on Cycladic financial contributions under Athenian imperialism, to appear in the published proceedings of the 2010 Celtic Conference in Classics, edited by Rutgers’ own Professor (II) Thomas J. Figueira.

Bonnin’s 8 November lecture will be held in Meeting Room B in the Douglass Campus Center at 4:00 PM—please note the start time. We expect to see a large and lively audience there, so come early.

RU Classics graduate students Scott Barnard and Nicole Freeto organized the event for the Classics GSA. You can view a list of some forthcoming GSA-sponsored lectures (through April 2013) here.
