Morgan Palmer presents at CAMWS 2018

Professor Morgan Palmer presented a paper entitled “At Home on the Palatine?  The Sedes of Vesta in Ovid’s Fasti” at the April 2018 meeting of the Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The paper examines Ovid’s juxtaposition of the traditional temple of Vesta with Augustus’ incorporation of the goddess into his own house on the Palatine hill.  Students in Professor Palmer’s “Roman Religion” course at Tulane have been discussing Ovid’s Fasti and Augustan religious reforms.
