In accordance with a policy established by the Board of Directors, the Association does not publish the numerical tabulation of the election in the Newsletter or on the web site.  The information is available, however, and any member may request the tabulation by making a written request to the Executive Director at the Society's office.

1,163 ballots were received by deadlines of September 14, 2015 (paper ballots) and September 17, 2015 at 3:00 a.m. Eastern time (online ballots).  Not all voters made choices in all elections.  Only 8 members submitted ballots by regular mail, a drop from 13 last year and 19 in 2013.  When we first conducted elections online (2009), that number was around 100. 

The total number of ballots cast (1,163) is slightly higher than last year’s figure (1,131) but still below the number in 2013 (1,305) which was the highest in my tenure as Executive Director.  However, this year's figure is in line with participation during the two previous years:  1,135 in 2012 and 1,142 in 2011.  It now seems most likely that the referendum about the change in the Society’s name increased participation in 2013.  In 2008 and 2007, the last two years of voting only by mail, the figures were 403 and 444, respectively.

Our seventh interview in the Contingent Faculty Series is a virtual conversation between Dr. Taylor Coughlan and Dr. Victoria Austen.

Victoria Austen received her Ph.D. from King’s College London in 2020 and has been teaching at the University of Winnipeg since 2019. In September 2022, she will begin a two-year position at Carleton College, in Minnesota, as the Oden Postdoctoral Fellow in Innovation in the Humanities (Classics). Her main research focuses on the imaginative space of Roman gardens and landscapes across literature and art from the Late Republic and Early Empire; she is also interested in classical reception (particularly related to myth) and the study of race and ethnicity in the ancient world. She is the social media manager for Peopling the Past (@peoplingthepast), and you can also find her tweeting @Vicky_Austen.

Taylor Coughlan: You received your education and training in the UK, and moved to Canada to begin your professional career, and have a further move to the U.S. on the horizon. What have you learned from working in different cities and countries?

The SAGP Board has decided that the 2022 Annual Meeting will again occur via Zoom. This makes it possible to stretch out the time-frame so that we do not have simultaneous panels. We will schedule panels on weekends, Friday through Monday (avoiding Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, since those are the heaviest teaching days for most people). We will schedule starting September 23, and ending November 19, for this round.

Members of the Society are invited to propose Zoom panels. Organizers should specify the topic of the panel, the proposed speakers (with academic affiliation and email address) and tentative title (check with them first!), and preferred date (and an alternate). Some preference for organizers who would be able to host a zoom event themselves.

This annual talk is a collaborative effort intended to highlight the work of a senior doctoral candidate whose research features interdisciplinary work between the fields of archaeology and Classical philology, and to support the student networks between these related fields.

Amanda Gaggioli, doctoral candidate at Stanford University and second SAIG/GSC Dissertation Lecturer, will present “Earthquakes and the Structuring of Greco-Roman Society: the longue durée of human-geological environment relationships in Helike, Greece.” This virtual talk integrates data from archaeology, history, and ancient languages with those from environmental sciences to discuss how earthquakes and other geological hazards affected human-ecological interactions in the ancient world.
