Mouseion: Journal of the Classical Association of Canada
Volume 11, Number 2, 2011, LV—Series
Mouseion aims to be a distinctively comprehensive Canadian journal of Classical Studies, publishing articles and reviews in both French and English. One issue annually is normally devoted to archaeological topics, including field reports, finds analysis, and the history of art in antiquity. The other two issues focus on all other areas of Greek and Roman antiquity, including literature, history, philosophy, religion, and reception studies.
Wild Dream Films seeks presenters and experts in the areas of science, ancient history, and archaeology. It seeks individuals able to take viewers into interesting worlds, get hands on, and ultimately have a strong point of view on a topic. Please contact the company at email@example.com and state specifically how you were bitten by the science/history/archaeology bug, what kind of work you may have done around it, and why it continues to be a driving force in your life and/or work. Feel free to attach any relevant pictures of you and/or your work in the field.
The Digital Latin Library—a Linked Open Data resource—has its origins in discussions between the Foundation and the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) in 2011. In 2012 SCS, in collaboration with the Medieval Academy of America and the Renaissance Society of America, requested and received funding from the Foundation for a feasibility study to determine the appropriate scope of the project and to identify institutions where it could be carried out. SCS Information Architect Samuel Huskey directed the feasibility study, and with the endorsement of all three learned societies submitted an initial implementation grant to the Foundation on behalf of his home institution, the University of Oklahoma, with the help of his collaborators, June Abbas and Chris Weaver. The new grant funds the first year of a three year project, which has two components: The Digital Latin Library and the Library of Digital Latin Texts.
We are pleased to announce that a special issue of EPEKEINA (International Journal of Ontology. History and Critics) dealing with the Roman conception of time and cultural history is now available at:
The title chosen for the whole volume is “Evil, Progress, and Fall: Moral Readings of Time and Cultural Development in Roman Literature and Philosophy”, since most of the contributions pertain to the Section “Latin Philosophy and Culture”, edited by Rosa Rita Marchese and Fabio Tutrone. However, this issue also hosts thematically different sections, such as the Proceedings of a conference on Latin Platonism recently held in Cardiff. Articles are in English, Italian and German, and can be dowloaded as PDF files.
We are pleased to launch the Yearbook of Ancient Greek Epic (YAGE) to be published annually by Brill starting in 2016. The yearbook will cover the entire epic tradition from Homer to Nonnus. With each installment addressing a special topic, YAGE will be a platform for the dissemination of cutting-edge, synthetic research on Ancient Greek epic.
For Volume 1 (2016) and Volume 2 (2017), we invite submissions on any area of Ancient Greek epic, but we are especially interested in submissions on two special topics:
The American Classical League invites applications for the position of Editor of The Classical Outlook, one of the most widely circulated Classics journals in North America. The Editor is responsible for the evaluation of materials for publication, with the assistance of an editorial board, and for the production and mailing (via mailing service) of four quarterly issues per annum. The position is not salaried, but a generous travel budget is provided to cover costs of attending the ACL's annual Institute each June as well as a mid-year Executive Committee meeting and other professional meetings. The Editor's home institution (generally a college or university) is expected to provide released time, office space, and/or clerical assistance at a level sufficient to produce high quality camera-ready copy for printing.
The Managing Editors of the Suda On Line are pleased to announce that a translation of the last of the >31,000 entries in the Suda was recently submitted to the SOL database and vetted. This means that the first English translation of the entire Suda lexicon (a vitally important source for Classical and Byzantine studies), as well as the first continuous commentary on the Suda’s contents in any language, is now searchable and browsable through our on-line database (http://www.stoa.org/sol).
Hortensii, a new initiative to tackle the problems facing PhDs without permanent academic positions, has been launched as a result of a survey in which many Women’s Classical Caucus members participated. The survey found a serious problem affecting large numbers of people, but also that there are many things that could be done to improve the situation. A full report of the survey results and suggested action plans can be found at http://hortensii.wordpress.com The project urgently needs volunteers to help implement the suggestions; offers of help will be gratefully received E.Dickey@reading.ac.uk.
