From the SCS Leadership

SCS Board Endorses AHA Statement

The Society for Classical Studies strongly supports the American Historical Association's statement condemning the Polish law criminalizing discussion of Polish complicity in Nazi war crimes during World War II. Open discussion of the events of the past is our own Society's raison d'être. Such discussion cannot be limited to events of which we are proud, nor can we permit those of which we are ashamed to be forgotten. These principles must apply to the study of all periods of history. Our Society's interest in this particular question involves a growing integration between what were once regarded as discrete areas in the study of Mediterranean antiquity, including Greek and Roman studies, Ancient Near Eastern studies, Jewish studies, and other related areas.

Classics Advisory Service

The Classics Advisory Service helps college and university teachers maintain and strengthen their programs in Classics (broadly understood to include Greek and Latin languages and literatures, history, archaeology, and all other aspects of classical civilization). Among the services we provide are assistance with external Program Reviews, and advice and support for strengthening current programs and preserving threatened programs. The SCS now also provides guidelines for establishing and improving undergraduate programs.
