Call for papers: 2014 meeting

2014 Annual Meeting, October 9-11
The Washington Marriott at Metro Center, Washington DC
775 12th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20005

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 concerns of K-12 and college faculty, and which consider ways of “communicating” about ancient Greece and Rome beyond 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 proposals must be submitted via the online form available at the CAAS-CW website.

Please note that current membership in CAAS is required in order to submit proposals and to present papers or preside over sessions. The submission deadline is April 7, 2014. For more detailed information, and to enter a submission, please visit http://www.caas-cw.org/papercall questions may also be sent to the program coordinator, Judith P. Hallett, jeph@umd.edu.
