2021 Draft Session Listing: Virtual Meeting

The table below is a summary listing of all sessions and events currently scheduled. 

  • The preliminary program including listings of paper titles and speakers can be found here.
  • All times are CST.
  • There are two session blocks each day for panels and paper sessions. There will also be affiliated group, departmental, and special events. 
  • Session blocks are three hours long but we realize many sessions may be shorter and we encourage all to aim for shorter sessions to combat Zoom fatigue.
  • We would like to give everyone the opportunity to present live but realize that some organizers of panels and individual presenters of papers in paper sessions may opt to pre-record.

Presidential Panel
"William Sanders Scarborough and Black Classicism at the Turn of the Twentieth Century"
 
This panel responds to a shameful episode in the history of American classics: in 1909, the distinguished Black classicist and President of Wilberforce University, William Sanders Scarborough (1852-1926), chose not to attend the annual meeting of the American Philological Association (now the SCS) in Baltimore because the hotel where the conference banquet was to be held refused to serve him.  The speakers will contextualize Scarborough’s exclusion from the annual meeting within the history of Baltimore as well as the profession of Classical Studies and will address the aspirations and achievements of Scarborough himself and of the many Black writers and scholars of his period who engaged with classical antiquity, a rich legacy from which we have much to learn as we strive to make our profession truly inclusive and anti-racist.

1. Michele Valerie Ronnick (Wayne State University): "A Portrait of William Sanders Scarborough in 1909"

2. Andre Davis (University of Maryland Carey School of Law): "Ruminations on Place, Privilege, and Prejudice: Baltimore at the Dawn of the Twentieth Century"

3. John W.I. Lee (University of California Santa Barbara): ““I am trying to walk in your footsteps:” John Wesley Gilbert and William Sanders Scarborough from Athens to Philadelphia”

4. Eric Ashley Hairston (Wake Forest University): "Not merely remembered ...."

5. Shelley Haley (Hamilton College): “Response”
