Graduate Education in Classics: A Continuing Conversation....
This page will be updated periodically as more information becomes
the projects described below. It was last updated on May 24, 1995.
Penn in Fall '95
It is anticipated that there will be at least one meeting at which those
interested, working as a group or perhaps in several groups, formulate
specific proposals for what some of the graduate programs of the future
should be. As in the case of previous meetings at Penn, all who care able
to attend will be welcome to participate.
Events at other venues
The events held at Penn have been attended by scholars from every part of
the country, but most plentifully by neighbors in the
northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions. We encourage our
colleagues in other parts of the country to sponsor similar
events. Those of us who have been involved in these discussions
would be happy to share our experiences with you and to take
part in events that you sponsor.
After some specific recommendations have been generated, we plan to
publish an interim report on the state of graduate education in
Classics and its prospects over the coming years, either as a collection
of essays or as a special issue of one of the professional
APA seminarSeveral people have suggested that this topic would be
ideal for a
three-year APA seminar. It would be interesting to hear more from a
variety of people about whether this seems like a good direction in
which to move, and about specific topics that such a seminar might
address over its lifespan.
This is not, however, a local or regional issue, nor a topic of this
The nature of our field and the ways in which we carry on our work and
train others to do so should always be open to wide-ranging
discussion. We intend to maintain an Internet discussion list and to
archive individual contributions to it. Please send questions, comments,
requests, and recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org
