Announcements for 3 August


  • CANEns is on its summer schedule through the end of August. We will post announcements on Sundays and either a links or feature post each week.
  • Now is a great time to pay your membership dues for the 2014-2015 academic year.



  • The Brown University Library is dismantling its Art Slide Library collection of 35mm slides. We have thousands of slides relating to the Classical world and they are available for free for non-commercial, educational, or artistic purposes. Slides must be picked up on the Brown campus during the work week between the hours of 9 and 4. Please contact Karen Bouchard for further information or an appointment. The room must be cleared before the summer is over, so time is of the essence!
  • MaFLA’s Summer Institute will be running on 8-10 August. Registration is open, and there are plenty of Latin sessions!
  • The Classics Program at the University of New Hampshire is pleased to issue a call for papers for its first Rouman Symposium for Research in Classics and the Humanities, to be held on the Durham campus from October 17–19, 2014. The Symposium is sponsored by the John C. Rouman Classical Lecture Series and will run from the afternoon of Friday the 17th until the early afternoon of Sunday the 19th. For more information, or to send in an abstract, contact R. Scott Smith.
