XVI International Conference, 1–5 August 2022
 

Mexico City 

(Virtual Meeting Format) 

Hesperides Sponsored Session 

"Hesperian Transformations: New Approaches to the Classical Tradition" 

Proposal Deadline: July 12, 2021 

  

Hesperides, a new scholarly organization for the study of the legacies of the ancient Mediterranean in Luso-Hispanic contexts, invites papers for a panel at the upcoming conference of FIEC, to be held virtually in Mexico in 2022. This session, part of “Module 1: Discourses of appropriation and identity,” will showcase the breadth of contemporary scholarship on diverse manifestations of Greco-Roman traditions across and between Iberian contact zones, from the Mediterranean, to the Americas, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and beyond. 

​ 

To present the most inclusive snapshot of current scholarship in these contexts, this panel seeks papers that transcend traditional disciplinary distinctions, periodizations, geographic boundaries, and linguistic divides. We therefore welcome submissions from scholars whose work engages with classical legacies as they intersect with any of these cultural, geographic, or linguistic contexts, from premodernity to the 21st century. 

​ 

The panel invites participants to consider these perspectives through the metaphor of transformation, which gives equal emphasis to receiving contexts and received cultures (Baker, Helmrath and Kallendorf 2019), or through alternative methodologies that highlight the importance of such contexts for the modification of received cultures. Successful submissions will reflect on these Hesperian transformations for current conceptions of the discipline of classics more generally. Possible areas of inquiry include: 

​ 

—new methods and theoretical models for interpreting the uses of classical antiquity beyond the Global North 

​​ 

—studies of classical reception that trace original political, ideological or philosophical re-elaborations of antiquity in Luso-Hispanic contexts 

​ 

—the contributions of those who have been overlooked in previous scholarship, such as indigenous, Afrodescendent, and female voices 

​​ 

—diverse forms of cultural production, learned and popular, across media and modality, representing non-elite in addition to elite perspectives 

​​ 

—analyses of classical reception through the lenses of non-European modalities of time, space, ontology and epistemologies 

​​ 

—aesthetic or literary studies of classical texts and art that acquire new forms or different meanings in Luso-Hispanic contexts 

​​ 

—engagement with critical theories and frameworks outside the field of classics that enrich the study of antiquity and its reception 

​ 

Please send a proposal for a 20-minute paper as an email attachment (Microsoft Word .doc) to , with the title “FIEC: Hesperian Transformations” in the subject line. The deadline for submissions is July 5, 2021. Submissions should include the information indicated below and will be reviewed anonymously by the organizers, who will make final selections by July 19, 2021. The languages of FIEC are English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

  • Reference information for your three most recent publications

Final Reminder: Revised 9/23/21 with updated submission deadline of Friday, February 18, 2022.

As previously announced, Patrice Rankine and Sasha-Mae Eccleston will serve as guest editors of a future issue of TAPA with the theme of race, racism, and Classics (issue 153:1, to appear April 2023). Their detailed call for papers, along with submission instructions, follows.

Covid-19 and the global Movement 4 Black Lives have highlighted the extent to which racism is a public health emergency whose reach extends across the Black Atlantic and far beyond. In light of these deeply imbricated developments, this volume becomes even more timely.

Race and Racism: Beyond the Spectacular

"…the “cultural logic” of lynching enables it to emerge and persist throughout the modern era because its violence “fit” within the broader, national cultural developments. This synchronicity captures why I refer to lynching as “spectacular”: the violence made certain cultural developments and tensions visible for Americans to confront."

ACLS logo

Please join us on Monday, February 14, 2022, at 4:00-5:30pm EST, for a career webinar for PhDs and graduate students on K-12 teaching (registration required).

ACLS will offer a virtual presentation for PhDs and graduate students to learn about teaching roles in K-12 schools during a Q&A with people representing K-12 independent and public schools.

We hope this will prepare anyone interested in applying to K-12 independent and public schools for Fall 2022 teaching roles, which are advertised primarily in winter. Teaching at public schools is a less immediate option because of certification and degree requirements which vary by state, so most of our panelists teach in independent schools, which don’t require certification.

In 2022 the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) will again award the David D. and Rosemary H. Coffin Fellowship for study and travel in classical lands.

The Fellowship is intended to recognize secondary-school teachers of Greek or Latin who are as dedicated to their students as the Coffins themselves by giving them the opportunity to enrich their teaching and their lives through direct acquaintance with the classical world.  It will support study in classical lands (not limited to Greece and Italy); the recipient may use it to attend an educational program in (e.g. American Academy, American School) or to undertake an individual plan of study or research. It may be used either for summer study or during a sabbatical leave, and it may be used to supplement other awards or prizes.

You can read more about this fellowship here: Coffin Fellowship Flyer or for full details and instructions please visit the David D. and Rosemary H. Coffin Fellowship page. Materials must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

Digital Ancient Rome

An NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators

Digital Ancient Rome is an NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators that will give teachers an opportunity to learn about important examples of Roman art, architecture, and archaeology through a broad range of digital resources. One of the most exciting things for students who study ancient Rome is that so many physical aspects of its civilization survive to this day. It is not just an ancient history that we know through texts. The surviving material remains—small artifacts, sculpture, paintings, mosaics, public monuments, neighborhoods, and whole cities—tell a variety of stories about the ancient world, and they bring history to life in a way that students find compelling.  

Dates: July 18-29, 2022

Place: Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota
