“Professor Brian Bosworth has built an international reputation as one of the foremost scholars of Ancient History of his generation,” UWA Vice-Chancellor, Professor Alan Robson, said
“The University is justifiably proud of Professor Bosworth's contribution to scholarship over this period, particularly as it has been forged so far from any other formally constituted centre of Classics and Ancient History, and it wishes to celebrate his career in an appropriate way to mark his retirement.”
Entitled: 'Conquest and Isolation', the symposium will feature a host of invited local and international speakers, whose papers will focus on the era of Alexander the Great and his successors, the period Professor Bosworth has done so much to illuminate.
Professor Bosworth will give a public lecture: ‘Anecdote and the Real Alexander’ on Thursday, July 19, at 6pm, in Austin Lecture Theatre, UWA’s Arts building.
The symposium will take place over two days from July 19 – 20, 2007 at The University Club, commencing with a reception on the evening of July18.
All are welcome to attend the symposium and participate in discussions that will be at the heart of the celebration.
