The Slater Lecture
2012 Slater Lecture
Author of the Roman Mysteries series Caroline Lawrence was the guest lecturer for the annual Thelma Tournay Slater Classics Lecture on Thursday, October 4.
Lawrence presented, “The Historical Detective: How Real and Replica Roman Artifacts Are Used as Clues.” Lawrence is an avid storyteller, which she accredits to her love of reading everything and watching as many movies and television shows as possibly she can. In fact, the stories that she reads and views inspired her to peruse her two passions—telling stories and ancient Roman culture. Read more.
About the Slater Lecture
The Thelma Tournay Slater Classics Lecture is made possible through a gift of Thelma E. (Tournay '42) Slater. Her lifelong passion for the classics began at Mount Union. The gift supports student enrichment through an increased appreciation of the civilization and cultural achievements of ancient Greek and Rome that stand at the core of a liberal arts education.
