Call for Ovationes for Fall 2020

Each year at its annual meeting the Classical Association of the Atlantic States presents ovationes to members selected by the Awards Committee for their significant service to the discipline and the organization. The ovatio is read in Latin by a colleague close to the honoree at a plenary luncheon, while copies of the ovatio in Latin and English are distributed to attendees.

The ovatio recognizes long and distinguished service to CAAS and/or to the classics community by those in the CAAS region, especially by those retiring or concluding a long term of service.

The Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for 2020 CAAS ovationes, to be presented at the 2020 October annual meeting. Nominees and nominators need to be CAAS members in good standing. To nominate a candidate to the Awards Committee for an ovatio, please download and complete the nomination form at, and procure a copy of your nominee’s CV or resume.

Please send your completed nomination form and your nominee’s CV or resume as email attachments to the Chair of the Awards Committee, Sarah Ferrario ( by July 1, 2019.

Thank you very much for assisting the committee in its work.
