Sponsored by: Classical Association of the Atlantic States
Call for Papers Deadline: March 6, 2018
“We invite individual and group proposals on all aspects of the classical world and
classical reception, and on new strategies and resources for improved teaching.
Especially welcome are presentations that aim at maximum audience
participation and integrate the concerns of K-12 and college faculty, that consider
ways of communicating about ancient Greece and Rome beyond our discipline
and profession, and that reflect on the past and present of classical studies in
Philadelphia and its environs.
We hope to include an undergraduate research session of presentations
developed from outstanding term papers, senior theses or other scholarly
projects, to be organized in conjunction with Eta Sigma Phi, the national honor
society for classical studies. There will be a book signing and special panel
organized by Professor Kurt Raaflaub of Brown University to mark the
publication of The Landmark Julius Caesar—the definitive edition of the five
works that chronicle Caesar’s military campaigns, and as such a very useful aid to
Latin teachers and students. Accordingly, submissions on Caesar and the
teaching of Caesar are particularly welcomed. Our Clack Lecturer will be Emily
Greenwood of Yale University, speaking on “What Thucydides Didn’t Write:
Adventures on the Frontiers of World Literature and World History.”
All submitters and all Program participants must be current members of CAAS.
Participants in the 2018 Annual Meeting must be members when they submit
proposals and must renew their memberships for 2018-2019 (The membership
year is September 1-August 31).”
