Speaker:  Katarzyana Jazdezwska, AIAS Fellow and Associate Professor


In this talk, I will discuss ancient Greek practice of dedicating a work of literature to a named addressee. I will explore origins of dedications as well as literary and rhetorical conventions that shaped them, and ask questions regarding their role in social practices of networking, patronage, and gift giving.  Short bio
