CFP: Teaching Roman Comedy (APA Panel)

Seen on the Classicists list (the date has past on this one; folsk might want to be aware of it though):

Sponsored by the American Classical League and organized by Timothy Moore,
University of Texas, Austin and Mary C. English, Montclair State University

The American Classical League invites scholars and teachers of Roman Comedy to submit abstracts for its panel session at the Philadelphia Meeting of the American Philological Association in 2012. We are particularly interested in papers that address how instructors at all levels have taught the plays of Plautus and Terence in Latin classes and Roman Civilization courses and how they have addressed the perceived difficulty of language and meter in these scripts. We are also interested in papers that explore the reception of Plautus and Terence and how more contemporary productions and/or interpretations of Roman comedy engage today’s students.

Abstracts should be submitted to Mary C. English, Dept. of Classics, Montclair State University, Montclair NJ 07043, (englishm AT and should be only one page in length. Please follow the instructions for the format of individual abstracts that appear in the APA Program Guide. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is Feb. 28, 2011.
