ASCSA 2022 William Sanders Scarborough Fellowships

Featured

DEADLINEJanuary 15, 2022

This fellowship is intended to honor and remember Professor William Sanders Scarborough and to help foster diversity in the fields of Classical and Hellenic Studies and the Humanities more broadly by supporting students and teachers from underrepresented groups in their study and research at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

William Sanders Scarborough (1852–1926), the son of an enslaved woman and a freedman, was a pathbreaking African American Classical scholar and public intellectual. Scarborough’s scholarship included philological works on Greek and Roman authors, as well as studies of African languages and African American folklore. His First Lessons in Greek (1881) was the first foreign language textbook by an African American author. He taught at Ohio’s Wilberforce University and Payne Theological Seminary, serving as Wilberforce’s president from 1908–1920. At least twice in his life (1886 and 1896), Scarborough hoped to attend the American School, with the encouragement of the School’s Managing Committee. Lack of funding, coupled with his many professional responsibilities, kept Scarborough from realizing his dream of going to Greece. 

Eligibility: Graduate students, faculty members (K-12 and all levels of post-secondary education), and independent scholars residing in the United States or Canada, regardless of citizenship, whose geographic origin, diverse experiences, and socio-economic background are underrepresented at the School (including persons from the Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Color communities), and whose studies, research, or teaching would benefit from residency at the School. Fellowship recipients need not be specialists in the field of Classical Studies. The School welcomes applicants from faculty of K-12 schools and from students or faculty from public and private universities, colleges, and community colleges; and encourages applications from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

Terms and Duration: The fellowship supports up to three months in residence at the School to carry out proposed research projects, to join the School’s academic programs (field trips and seminars during the regular academic year or the summer, excavations at the Agora or Corinth, scientific field schools, etc.), and/or to develop knowledge, resources, and collegial networks to enhance their teaching. Applicants interested in using the fellowship to participate in summer programs should also submit separate applications to relevant programs of interest. Applicants to the Scarborough fellowship program wishing to be considered for summer programs in 2022 should contact the ASCSA Programs Administrator at application@ascsa.org for further guidance. Applicants wishing to use the Scarborough fellowship to offset costs of participation in the Regular Member academic program of the School must also apply directly for Regular Membership. The fellowship may not be held concurrently with Regular Member Fellowships.
Awards granted in the January 2022 competition should normally be used between June 1, 2022 and May 30, 2023.

Each of the awards provides for $1500 per month (rounded upwards to the nearest whole month to a maximum of 3 month) as a stipend. The fellowship provides room and 
board at Loring Hall, a waiver of any applicable School fees, and one roundtrip economy-class airfare to Athens. The School intends to make up to four such awards each year. 

Award decisions will be announced in March 2022.

Call for Applications: Program Chair, The Classical Association of the Atlantic States, 2021-2024

Featured

The Classical Association of the Atlantic States is seeking applications for the position of Program Chair. The Program Chair will serve a three-year term, beginning immediately after the fall 2021 CAAS annual meeting and running through the end of the fall 2024 annual meeting. The position carries a stipend, and may be renewed for more than one term.  The applicant must live or work in the CAAS area (Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania).

The responsibilities of the Program Chair include selecting and overseeing a diversely constituted committee of twenty-five CAAS members, from all six civic jurisdictions in the CAAS region, to organize a program to be presented at the annual meeting, based on the committee’s anonymous assessments of submissions: both abstracts of individual papers and proposals for panels and workshops. Committee members also serve as presiders at paper sessions, and in this capacity work with individuals in their sessions whose abstracts and proposals have been accepted: by sharing edited versions of program committee assessments to provide constructive feedback, and facilitating the transformation of abstracts into 15-minute presentations for oral delivery that are accessible to all attendees at the CAAS meeting.

The Program Chair works closely with both the Executive Director and Webmaster in planning and publicizing the annual meeting. Most of the Program Chair’s work takes place between the time of the spring Board meeting in April and the fall meeting in October. The Program Chair is also a member of the CAAS Executive and Nominations Committees, serves on the Awards and Clack Lecture Committees ex officio, and oversees the application and selection procedures for travel subsidy awards. A record of previous participation in CAAS programs and service on the CAAS Program Committee will be accorded special weight.

Please send applications to Ralph Rosen rrosen@sas.upenn.edu by August 21, 2021.  Applications should include a letter of interest, the names and contact information of three references, and a current curriculum vitae.

Call for Papers: CAAS 2021 Annual Meeting

Featured

Where: Heldrich Hotel and Conference Center, New Brunswick, NJ

When: October 14-16, 2021

Submission Deadline: March 22, 2021

Submit here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caas2021

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, present, and future of Classical studies in the CAAS region.

The 2021 Jerry Clack Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Donald Lateiner, John R. Wright Professor of Greek, Emeritus, at Ohio Wesleyan University. Professor Lateiner entitles his presentation “Epizêlos’ Tale: The Phantom Killer at the Battle of Marathon (Herodotos Histories 6.117)”. He advertises his lecture (perhaps illustrated, surely a handout) as follows: Herodotos briefly recounts the preparations and battle of Marathon, the resulting casualties, other consequences and especially a “wonder” (thauma) experienced by the Athenian hoplite Epizêlos. The presentation considers Hellenic battle-trauma, visions, deceptions, and Herodotos’ tricky, far from gullible, so far inimitable techniques to preserve past voices while distancing himself from questionable war-stories. When his battle-line hit the Persian invaders, Epizêlos became blind, although not struck or otherwise harmed. The traumatized battler then “saw” a large and bearded enemy apparition (phasma) pass him by and kill his next-in-line comrade. The startled blind man repeated for decades his tale of suffering (pathos) and vision. Herodotos heard it. What can and should Herodotos and his modern historiographer do with this soldier’s appended logos of battle-trauma? Our sampling of ancient uncanniness will briefly canvass the many modern physiological (hormonal), psychological, and emotional, explanations of Epizêlos’ eerie experiences.

All submitters of proposals for the meeting must be current members of CAAS. Participants in the 2021 Annual Meeting must be members when they submit proposals and must renew their memberships for 2021-2022 (the membership year is September 1-August 31).  All authors of proposals that are accepted by the Program Committee for presentation at the 2021 meeting are expected to attend and deliver their presentations in on-ground, fully virtual, or hybrid Zoom format.  At this time, due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, all meeting participants are expected to be flexible in preparing for and adjusting to on-ground, fully virtual, or hybrid annual meeting in October 2021.  All authors of accepted proposals are required to send a full draft of their presentations to their presider(s) by the end of September.  Submitters of accepted proposals who are unable to attend should arrange to have their presentations delivered by another CAAS member.

All authors of paper and panel presentations, presiders/co-presiders are advised to read the CAAS Antiracism Committee statement on condemning the use of the texts, ideals, and images of the Greek and Roman world to promote hateful ideology, as follows:

The Classical Association of the Atlantic States is committed to fighting against all forms of racism and bigotry, including anti-Blackness, anti-Semitism, sexism, anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment, ableism and all other kinds of bias, in order to make our discipline fairer and more inclusive for all, as we strengthen the position of Classics through the development of better methods of teaching and the fostering of public support of the Classics. In addition, CAAS expects that all Annual Meeting participants will be treated with respect and afforded the dignity of being included in presentations and public discussions and not targeted, disrespected, or excluded. The Program Committee therefore asks authors to be mindful of the language used in preparing abstracts and papers and to take care to avoid biased phrasing and diction that are discriminatory or harmful to historically marginalized groups (be they economic, ethnic, financial, religious or social). We call to the attention of all authors CAAS’s statement on anti-racism; the Society for Classical Studies’ statement on systemic racism, which CAAS also endorses; and the Principles of Antiracist Teaching and Reflection curated by the Multiculturalism, Race and Ethnicity in Classics Consortium (MRECC), which offers pathways for educators to advance learning and scholarship while building equity and inclusivity for historically marginalized groups in furtherance of the mission of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States. Abstracts and proposals that run counter to these values will not be accepted.

Panel and Workshop Proposals may be 1 ½ or 2 hours in length, depending on the number of speakers. Submissions must be uploaded as a single PDF (.pdf) or Word 97-2010 (.doc/docx) file of no more than 700 words and must include:

Each abstract of an individual presentation must be accompanied by a bibliography or a list of resources consulted of up to five items (not included in the word limit).

  • The proposal must be anonymousThe names of the organizer and presenters must not appear anywhere in this file except when citing a publication by the organizer or presenters.Those abstracts which include the names and/or institutional affiliations of their organizers and presenters will not be considered.

LAURENTIUS ME FECIT: in memoriam CAAS Leader Dr. Lawrence E. Gaichas, emeritus Duquesne University

Featured

Click here to read online obituary published in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Please read below tribute written by Henry Bender, CAAS Treasurer

Click here to read tribute in PDF format

On August 7, 2019 Lawrence E. Gaichas passed away. For long time members of CAAS, the mention of his name brings back many decades of Larry’s meticulous and patient work to produce and maintain the Directory of College and University Classicists in the United States and Canada.

The CAAS Directory consisted of four editions. Sponsored by CAAS, each was the product of exhaustive information gathering achieved through the cooperation of Duquesne University.

The first three editions, the third of which appeared in 1992, were published by Classical World and appeared in the normal binding of the Journal.  The thickness of each Directory steadily increased. Their frequent use often led to the breaking of the gum back bindings and pages would inevitably fall out.

While 1992 edition contained about 400 email addresses, under Larry’s direction, registrations utilizing the internet, email, and surface mail, grew exponentially. In four years, the Directory more than doubled reaching a data base of over 2000 classicists.

The 1996 Fourth Edition of 336 pages featured a unique metal comb back binding making the book durable and easy to use. It took its rightful place between the Liddell and Scott and Oxford Latin Dictionary on every Classicist’s desk—a tome of contact information. Proudly on its final page appeared: LAURENTIUS ME FECIT.

Larry was a personable, steady and humorous educator whose close friend and “co-conspirator” was CAAS’ unique Jerry Clack. That duo of Larry and Jerry, the Duquesne Classics core, marked many CAAS Board meetings and social gatherings. My recollections of which go back to 1981. Larry was dependable, patient, and sensible. A gifted airplane pilot, he often flew his plane at fund raising events taking small groups airborne.  He is mourned by his large family and we, his extended CAAS family, remember him with fondness.

Theognis and the Theognidea Virtual Conference – April 28-30, 2021

“The Classics Program of Hunter College (CUNY) announces the rescheduled conference on Theognis and the Theognidea. The conference will now be virtual. It will run from April 28th (Wednesday) through April 30th (Friday) from 12-3:30 PM.

This event will be the first large scale gathering in nearly 40 years on Theognis, the archaic Greek poet of Megara, and the Theognidea, the fascinating and enigmatic collection of elegy that bears his name.  It brings together a diverse group of scholars who are working directly or indirectly on the Theognidea, or in related areas that have the potential to shed light on the corpus.  The conference is an opportunity to move beyond traditional questions of the origins, authenticity, and authority of the Theognidea.  Rather, we will consider how the Theognidea functions as a collection of poetry, and how this collection has been received and responded to over time.  We want to foster a dialogue that broadens our approaches to this collection, complicates our understanding of it as archaic, elegiac poetry, and explores its position in the wider scope of Greek and Latin literature. 

Registration is open for the virtual conference on Theognis and the Theognidea hosted by the Classics Program of Hunter College (CUNY) from April 28th (Wednesday) through April 30th (Friday) from 12-3:30 PM. (NB, the first day starts at 11:45AM and the last day runs to 4PM.) The conference is open and free. Registration is required. The link provided by registration can be used for each day.
