Hyde Lecturers

Every spring, the Graduate Group in Ancient History at Penn hosts a week-long visit by a distinguished ancient historian, made possible by a gift by Walter Woodburn Hyde (1870-1966, Professor of Greek and Ancient History at Penn 1910-1940). During his/her stay, the Hyde Lecturer teaches several graduate seminars, meets with graduate students individually and in smaller groups, and delivers the formal Hyde Lecture.
