Registration for the 2017 CANE Summer Institute at Brown University is now open. The theme is “The View From a Distance: Perspectives on the Greeks and Romans From Across Space and Time.” We will consider the views and responses to Greece and Rome by contemporaneous “others” from around the ancient world, as well as reactions and adaptations of Greek and Roman culture in later literature and physical art. Whether you are a teacher of Latin and/or Greek, history, English, the arts, or other related disciplines; an undergraduate or graduate student; or a devoted lifelong learner, you will enjoy a thoughtful and enriching experience that includes a wide variety of mini-courses, lectures, workshops, reading groups, and special events while also offering many opportunities for conversation and collegial interaction among participants.
