The Biggs Family Residency in Classics: Dr. Raffaella Cribiore

Raffaella Cribiore is Professor of Classics at New York University. She is a specialist in ancient education from the fourth century BCE to the fourth century CE, in papyrology (mostly literary), and in Greek rhetoric in the Second Sophistic period. She spends time every year at the NYU excavation in Egypt, Dakhla Oasis, where a school of higher education was found. 

Dr. Cribiore’s all-virtual Biggs Family Residency will focus on the topic “Taking Notes in Classical and Late Antique Philosophers’ Classes.” There will be three public events, all free and open to all comers who have access to Zoom and who register through the RSVP links below. Each event will begin with a formal introduction and will be followed by a discussion period.
