The Classical Association of the Atlantic States 

Call for Papers: 2017 Annual Meeting, October 5-7

Marriott East Side, New York City, New York

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. Our Clack Lecturer will be Gregson Davis of Duke University.

All submitters and all Program participants must be current members of CAAS. Participants in the 2017 Annual Meeting must be members when they submit proposals and must renew their memberships for 2017-2018 (The membership year is September 1-August 31).
