Also on Saturday, Michele Valerie Ronnick is delving into "The Origins of African-American Scholarship in the Classics" as part of the Robert J. Murray lecture series. Ronnick is associate professor in the department of classics, Greek and Latin at Wayne State University. She has also published widely in journals nationally and abroad and has won a number of professional awards for excellence in scholarship, teaching and service. Ronnick's research in the classical tradition led her to develop the new subfield, Classica Africana, which studies the influence of classics upon people of African descent. Her talk is at 4:00 p.m. in the Long Recital Hall in Edgecliff Hall. A reception follows the lecture.
