The Classical Association of the Atlantic States
Call for Papers: 2016 Annual Fall Meeting, October 20-22
The Heldrich Conference Center, New Brunswick, New Jersey
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 which aim at maximum audience participation and integrate the interests of K-12 and college faculty, and which 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.
All submitters and all Program participants must be current members of CAAS. Participants in the 2016 Annual Fall Meeting must be members when they submit proposals and must renew their memberships for 2016-2017 (The membership year is September 1-August 31).
The Call for Papers is now closed
