Jenny Deasy Visits University of Heidelberg in Germany

This summer, Jenny attended the workshop “2000 Years of Livy: Historiography in Movement” at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. At this week-long seminar, she presented research about Roman comedy in Livy’s Verginia story (3.44-3.48) in his history Ab urbe condita, which she had been studying with Dr. O’Bryhim. This seminar was a series of presentations about different aspects of Ab urbe condita by Classics undergraduate and graduate students from throughout the world, for which she was the only American. Presentations each were 30 minutes long and were followed by group discussion. In the spring, she plans to continue working with Dr. O’Bryhim on this research.
