CONF: Registration Open for Classics & Class

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

The Centre for the Reception of Greece & Rome at Royal Holloway is delighted

to announce that registration is now open for its British Academy-sponsored
conference, ‘Classics & Class’, to be held at the British Academy, 10
Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH, on July 1st and 2nd 2010. This is a
change from the previously advertised venue of Bedford Square. Speakers
include Jonathan Rose (Keynote, Author of The Intellectual Life of the
British Working Classes), Chris Stray, Ed Richardson, Ekaterina Basargina,
Adam Roberts, John Holford, Peter Rose, Paula James, Annie Ravenhill, Graham
Oliver, Robert Crawford, Sarah Butler, Richard Alston, Margaret Malamud, and
Katharine T. von Stackelberg. In addition, there will be a Performance Event
on the evening of July 1st with poetry and prose looking at the history of
Classics through the prism of social class, featuring Tony Harrison and
chaired by Peggy Reynolds (BBC’s Adventures in Poetry). Separate
registration for both the conference and the event (both of which are
entirely free of charge and open to the public) is now open online at
http://www.britac.ac.uk/events/2010/classicsandclass/index.cfm. Places for
attendees other than speakers and chairpersons are limited to 60, and will
be offered on a firmly first-come first-serve basis. For further information
