An evening with Dr. Michael Fronda

Thursday afternoon and evening, several of the faculty and fellow graduate students and I enjoyed a lecture and social time with Dr. Michael Fronda of McGill University in Montreal. Dr. Fronda, who is a friend of Dr. Bill Caraher, was in Grand Forks to deliver the first Cyprus Research Fund lecture, entitled, “Anarchy, Rivalry, and the Beginnings of the Roman Empire.” The lecture was good and well-attended, with the East Asia Room being quite full. We then had a reception in the next room. Then, several of us headed to the Blue Moose, a local restaurant and bar for some food, drink, and good conversation. I will say that these type of events are what I enjoy about the profession, as it is good to discuss things related to what I do with others who share my interest. Dr. Fronda will be speaking in the department at noon on Friday, as part of the Brown Bag Lunch Series. Bill made a podcast of the lecture and, when it is available, I will post it here.
