Ernst Badian (1925–2011)

The New England Ancient Historians Colloquium was founded by Professor Ernst Badian in 1978 to create a forum for the ancient historians of New England—both faculty and graduate students—to get together twice a year. The format was devised to encourage conversation and social exchange, and to enable a junior scholar to present his or her work for feedback by a more senior commentator, with a plenary discussion to follow.
