APA Montreal Meeting January 2006
Panel on North American Classics

Canadian input is being sought for an American Classical League (ACL) panel on North American Classics: Past, Present, Future, to be held at the APA's 2006 meeting in Montreal. Organizers are Paul Properzio (Boston Latin Academy) and Kenneth Kitchell (ACL President). The panel will focus on the history, present state, and future challenges facing the study and teaching of the Classics at all levels in the United States and Canada. Questions which may be addressed: Are conditions for Classics different in the two countries? Do they differ region to region within the same country? What are the driving forces behind change in the respective countries? Are there programs of distinction that could be recognized as models for training pre-collegiate teachers? What is the state of the supply of pre-collegiate teachers of the Classics and how might the two countries collaborate in this area? Papers may focus on a single problem or time period or take a historical or comparative approach. Papers addressing possible joint ventures between Canadian and American classics programs and organizations are especially encouraged. Deadline for receipt of submissions is February 1, 2005.

Each potential panelist should submit his/her own 500 to 800-word abstract on the subject of "North American Classics: Past, Present, Future," double-spaced, for papers of 15-20 minutes to Geri Dutra, Administrative Secretary, The American Classical League, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056. E-mail: Tel: (513) 529-7741, Fax: (513) 529-7742. Deadline for receipt of abstracts is February 1, 2005.

I am trying to locate an intensive summer Greek & Latin language program at a Canadian university — there are quite a few available in the U.S. I have not been able to find anything available in Canada. Is there such a course of studies at any Canadian university?
