The 2021 CANE Summer Institute will be held virtually over Zoom, covering 6 days over 2 weeks, July 13-15 and July 20-22.

Participants will have a choice of 1 course in the morning (8-9:15 am eastern time) and 1 course in the evening (6:30-7:45 pm eastern time).  Participants may choose to take a morning and/or an evening course.  The cost will be the same, regardless if you choose to take 1 or 2 courses.  Lectures will be 8-9:15 pm (eastern time) each evening.  Unlike past years, lecturers will give slightly shorter lectures and allow for some group discussion time in break-out groups the lecturers can visit. Lectures will be free and open to the public (as always) and will be recorded and posted on CANEweb until mid-August.  Zoom classes will be limited to 10 to engender the most group participation. Diane Arnson Svarlien (Verse Translator and Classicist) will give the 3 evening lectures July 13-15.  July 20-22 will be a “potpourri” of lectures by Kelly Dugan (Visiting Professor, Trinity College), Dan-el Padilla Peralta (Princeton University), and Patricia Eunji Kim (New York University).

Due to the digital nature of CSI, graduate credit will not be available in 2021.

The CANE Summer Institute is grateful to the Classical Association of New England, the Department of Classics at Brown University, and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation for their support.

Course selection is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration is now FULL for all courses. The evening lectures remain open to the public. If you are are interested in an evening lecture, please fill out this Google Form: https://forms.gle/AYJCtyEw5k9SH8fK7

Cost: Traditionally the program/tuition cost is $250. This year, we are asking for a $50/week suggested donation. Although Virtual CSI does not entail the costs of an in-person event, your donations and gifts help deflect the costs incurred, and we hope that you can pay what you can to help support our mission and programming. Your gifts are tax-deductible as the Classical Association of New England is a 501(c)(3) organization.

After registering, please make sure to pay via Paypal or by sending a check to Amanda Loud, CSI Director, P.O Box 724, Holderness, NH. 03245.

Zoom & Access Information

Zoom links will be posted here and emailed out closer to the date once course rosters have been finalized.

Before CSI: Please make sure to download Zoom and sign up for a (free) Zoom account, which uses the same name that you registered with.

Check your Internet speed. If possible, ask others in your home to stay off the Internet during your session to ensure the most stable connection possible.

During CSI: Courses and lectures will be held in Zoom Meetings. Participants will be muted during the lectures, though we encourage videos to be turned on. During the discussion sessions, participants will be placed into Breakout Rooms for small group discussion.

Whenever possible, we encourage the use of laptops or desktop computers over phones, as this will allow you to see more of what is going on and allow all of the features and functions of Zoom to work best.

Lastly, please remove distractions and background noises by closing the doors and windows to your space, silencing your phone, and asking your family or housemates to be mindful of when you will be attending meetings.
