October is National Arts and Humanities Month

October is National Arts and Humanities Month! During October, we encourage you to celebrate the arts and humanities through free, online events and resources that teach about the ancient world to the broader public. Anyone with an interest in ancient Greek and Latin, classical literature, ancient history, or archaeology can learn more and get involved.

Below is a list of free events and resources to explore this month. This list is not exhaustive, and we encourage you to check out additional public outreach programs celebrating the arts and humanities:

Online Conversations about Teaching in Carceral Settings (Classics and Social Justice)

Kassandra Miller and Elizabeth Bobrick, co-chairs of the Classics and Social Justice committee, invite you to join the second in a series of online informal conversations about teaching in carceral settings, on Saturday, Oct. 21 (11am PT / 2pm EST / 7pm GMT). As with our first session on Saturday, Sept. 23, we’ll continue making connections between people who want to find out more about prison education and/or share their experiences as teachers. All are welcome!
