CAC Directory of Classics Departments and Programmes in Canada
Répertoire des départements et de programmes d'études classiques au Canada

It's time once again to check the listings on the CAC Directory of Classics Departments and Programmes in Canada / Répertoire des départements et de programmes d'études classiques au Canada.

You can find the pages at:

(Note: you need only consult one of these. Ideally, they present the same information.)

Please have a look at your personal entry and encourage (or, better still, formally appoint) someone in your department to examine your departmental listing as a whole for items that might need to be updated, added, or deleted (new faculty, retirements, contact information, personal WWW pages, and so forth).

I've recently updated the links to department WWW sites, so they should work (for the moment!). The pages also include basic links to program information and specific resources or attractions available (on-line journals, local societies, etc.) but such links can be problematic: they tend to change frequently and, if too numerous, will make the page unwieldy. That being said, please send along any such links that you think might be appropriate — although I will ask for your understanding if they do not make it onto the page in the end.

The directory is a great resource but needs to updated with care from time to time. You and your colleagues are the ones best equipped to provide accurate and up-to-date information about your department, its members, and its programs.
