Classics Research Lab

In spring 2019 the Classics Department at Johns Hopkins launched an exciting initiative for undergraduates: research “laboratories” in which students can enroll for credit as they would any normal course. Each lab will be different, but each will engage students in direct, empirical research connected to the current work of the faculty member in charge. Some labs will complete their work in a semester, others may be ongoing or intermittent; in the latter case, students may join for just a term, or return.

Current Projects

Symonds Project

The John Addington Symonds Project (JASP) investigates the work of the Victorian writer John Addington Symonds, author of one of the first major studies of Ancient Greek sexuality, which was privately printed in ten copies and circulated anonymously.
