The Graduate Group embraces three departments: Classical & Near Eastern Archaeology, Greek, Latin, & Classical Studies, and History of Art. Faculty and students in the three departments share space and resources in the Rhys Carpenter Library and collaborate in many scholarly, professional, and social activities.
The biennial Graduate Student Symposium is one the Graduate Group's significant shared enterprises at Bryn Mawr. Organized entirely by students, these ambitious symposia attract graduate students from all over the United States and from other countries to contribute papers on such interdisciplinary themes as "Thievery: The Anxiety of Influence and Appropriation" (2009); "To the Ends of the Earth: Journeys Ancient to Modern" (2007); "After Death and Afterlife: The End or Beginning?" (2005).
On campus, Bryn Mawr College offers accommodations at Wyndham Alumnae House. Rooms are in limited supply, so please contact them early (610-526-5236).
