Professor Katharina Volk has indicated her intention to complete her term as Editor at the 2014 Annual Meeting. The Editor, who must be a member in good standing of the Association, is initially appointed for four years, with the possibility of extension for a maximum of two additional years. The new editor's term officially begins in January 2014 and will cover volumes 144-147 and the years 2014-2017. As Editor Designate, however, the new editor will begin to receive submissions in early 2013 and spend the summer and fall of that year preparing the 2014 issues for the press. Professor Volk will complete the two issues for the year 2013.
APA Annual Meeting Session 35 (Saturday, January 7, 11:15 a.m.-1:15 p.m., Marriott Grand Ballroom I), is a discussion of the literary, historical, art historical, religious, and political possibilities raised by John Miller's Goodwin Prize-Winning book. Incoming President-Elect Denis Feeney will be the moderator. Panelists will briefly summarize their papers but will not read them in their entirety so as to leave more time for discussion. The papers are therefore posted here.
To complement her Presidential Panel, “Images for Classicists,” to be held at the 2012 Joint Meeting of the APA/AIA in Philadelphia, Kathleen Coleman has assembled an online resource to help scholars locate and use images in their teaching and research.
By Kathleen Coleman, President, 2011
As a one-off project in 2011, the year in which the citations for award winners were curtailed for delivery at the annual meeting, the then President, Kathleen Coleman, conducted interviews with the 2010 prize-winners, to give them more prominence than the new format at the annual meeting allowed. The interviews are archived here for their intrinsic value. This site is not part of a series, but simply a unique exercise showcasing the dedication and talent of members of the Classics profession at a specific moment in its history, and memorializing their example.
The complete 2012 Annual Meeting Program is now posted.
