Call for Proposals: CAAS 2022 Annual Meeting

The Classical Association of the Atlantic States

Dates: October 6-8, 2022

Venue: HOTEL DU PONT, Wilmington, DE

Deadline for all proposals (individual papers, panels, workshops): (extended) Monday, March 28, 2022

We invite individual paper, panel, and workshop proposals on all aspects of the classical world and its reception, as well as on new strategies and resources for improved teaching.  Especially welcome are presentations that aim at maximum audience participation and integrate the interests of K-12 and college faculty, that consider ways of communicating about ancient Greece and Rome beyond our discipline and profession, and that reflect on the past, present, and future of Classical Studies in the CAAS region. 

The meeting will take place at the historic HOTEL DU PONT in Wilmington, Delaware.  When it opened on January 15, 1913, this magnificent 12-story Renaissance-style hotel was one of the most lavish hotels of America’s Gilded Age.  In its first week, 25,000 visitors toured the elegant rooms to see their rich woodwork, terrazzo floors, handcrafted chandeliers, and gilded hallways, which had been created by French and Italian craftsmen.  Breathtaking scenery and a wealth of history and cultural attractions are a short walk from this venue. 

The 2022 Jerry Clack Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Emma Dench, McLean Professor of Ancient and Modern History and of the Classics, Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University.  Her lecture is entitled: “Life and Leadership Lessons from Ancient Rome: Reflections on an Experiment in Applied Classics.”
