Teaching Classical Languages (TCL)

Note: Successor to CPL Online

Teaching Classical Languages is the only peer-reviewed electronic
journal dedicated to the teaching and learning of Latin and ancient
Greek. It addresses the interests of all Latin and Greek teachers,
graduate students, coordinators, and administrators.

Teaching Classical Languages welcomes articles offering innovative
practice and methods, advocating new theoretical approaches, or
reporting on empirical research in teaching and learning Latin and
Greek. As an electronic journal, Teaching Classical Languages has a
unique global outreach. It offers authors and readers a multimedia
format that more fully illustrates the topics discussed, and provides
hypermedia links to related information and websites.

Articles not only contribute to successful Latin and Greek pedagogy, but
draw on relevant literature in language education, applied linguistics,
and second language acquisition for an ongoing dialogue with modern
language educators.

CFP: “Exploring Equity in Antiquity”

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

In honour of the formation of an Equity Committee as part of the
Classical Association of Canada, the theme for this year’s panel
sponsored by the The Women’s Network/Réseau des Femmes is "Exploring
Equity in Antiquity." We invite submissions that explore questions
regarding the existence and nature of gender equality in the ancient
Mediterranean world. Did equity in the modern sense of the concept exist
in antiquity or is the notion of ‘separate but equal’ a more productive
way of thinking about the question? To what degree was there equity in
private or public spheres in areas such as religion, domestic and family
life, euergetism, commerce and trade, creative endeavours (e.g., music,
poetry and art) and other spheres of activity? How was gender equity

socio-economic status, age, or ethnicity? To what extent did these

19th and 20th centuries to achieve equity in the area of scholarship
(for example, the struggle of female classicists to gain professional
This call for papers is meant to be suggestive rather than exclusive. We
welcome papers that consider the theme from a variety of perspectives
and sources of evidence (textual, visual, and material).
Please submit abstracts online:

Abstracts should be around 300 words in length. The deadline is January
15, 2010. Please note your intention to participate in this panel when
you submit. For general inquires please contact Judith Fletcher,
