The Washington Marriott at Metro Center, Washington DC

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 a 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
Questions may also be sent to the program coordinator, Judith P.Hallett,
Please note that notices will be posted here for a three month period and then removed.
