||The Classical Association of the Atlantic
2013 Annual Meeting, October
The Inn at Penn
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, and that consider ways of communicating about ancient Greece and Rome outside of our discipline and profession. We are hoping to include an undergraduate research session featuring presentations based on outstanding term papers, senior theses or other scholarly projects.
