Jennifer Barry, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies, was invited to participate in a workshop at the Northwestern University on October 18-19, 2019. The Pro Publica: A Public Classics Workshop met to discuss and develop public facing pieces that seek to make scholarly topics accessible to a wider audience. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Classics department at Northwestern and the Society of Classical Studies.

Barry workshopped a piece on the overlap of gender violence and political propaganda titled, “Lying Women.” This piece ties into Barry’s current recent research on gender violence and late antiquity.
