About the Symposium

A Futuristic Look Through Ancient Lenses: Greece explored ancient Greece through the eyes of many of Eastern Illinois University's scholars. Academics spoke and led discussions on a variety of topics that have emerged from ancient thoughts and are still of interest today.

The symposium brought together the Eastern community and residents of the area to explore the future by learning about the past. This was the second symposium in the series, following the study of Ancient Egypt in the fall of 2011.

The symposium included a wide variety of formats, from scholarly presentations to film screenings to theater and dance performances. There were also related exhibits on display throughout the library.
