Smithsonian Resident Association Program lectures for October

I just realised October is almost upon us! That means I should probably pimp the October lectures. I also just realised they've separated the lecture series into "courses," so I might have missed announcing some last month. Oops.

Wednesday, October 5 @ 6:30PM - Pompeii: Reading Clues from Cataclysms with John Dobbins.

Although, that's just poor timing, because it's at the same time as the Paul Cartledge lecture ("What the Spartans Have Done for Us"). Yes, I'm going to be pimping that as often as possible.

Wednesday, October 19 @ 6:30PM - A Walking Tour of Naples (by Armchair) with Tommaso Astarita.

Wednesday, October 19 @ 6:30PM - Ancient Rome--A Virtual Tour! with Diane Favro.

Thursday, October 20 @ 6:30PM - Managing n Empire--Roman Style with Susan Mattern-Parkes.

There are lots of exciting lectures, so I'd recommend looking at them all yourself.

As for the courses:

Wednesday, October 5, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16 @ 6:30PM - Hail Caesar! with Steven Rutledge. It covers Caesar through the Flavians. This is the same professor who did Fiddling with Nero this summer.

Tuesday, October 11, 18, 25, November 1, 8, 15 @ noon - Text and Trowel: Exploring Biblical Cities Through Archaeology with Sandra Scham.

Wednesday, October 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16, 30, December 7 @ noon - Visual Experience: An Introduction to Art and Architecture with Karin M.E. Alexis.
