Program on Classical Studies
The Program on Classical Studies is directed by Professor Robert Garland, Roy D. and Margaret B. Wooster Professor of The Classics. Known for his popular lecture series in the Great Courses, Professor Garland has developed a creative project on the life and death of Socrates: a video with sound narration and music on Plato's Apology
that is entitled, "Socrates on Death Row."
It will be a teaching resource for Colgate's core curriculum, Core 151, 'Legacies of the Ancient World' and will be viewed in the Ho Center's Visualization Lab by students and the public. Robert's goal is to make the classics of Greek and Roman philosophy come alive for modern audiences.
