CALLING MUSICAL CLASSICISTS

Seen on Classics (please send any responses to the folks mentioned in the quoted text, not to rogueclassicism!):

The APA Division of Outreach and the APA Committee on Ancient and Modern Performance are creating a list of classicists with backgrounds in musical performance and the history of music.

We are especially eager to identify colleagues who would be willing to share their knowledge of both music and classical antiquity with individuals writing or performing works that are set in the ancient Greco-Roman world, draw on ancient Greek and Latin literary texts, or feature classical figures and themes.

If you would be willing to lend your expertise to this project, particularly by responding to queries from denizens of the musical world, please send a brief (200-300 word) biography describing your "credentials" and interests in both classics and music to Judith P. Hallett, jeph AT umd.edu. The deadline for inclusion in the initial list is February 28, but it will be updated regularly.
