ED | Summer Latin at Tufts

Seen on the LatinTeach list:

 If you’re going to be in the Boston area this summer, you may want to
know about my annual graduate course on the reception of a classical
author.  This year’s topic is Caesar — we’ll read all of Caesar’s own
works (Gallic War, Civil War, and fragments) and works by other authors
who have responded to, argued with, or written about Caesar, from Cicero
to Muret and beyond, including biographies of Caesar by Suetonius and
Petrarch.  All readings will be in Latin.

Although this is not an AP workshop, participants will gain useful
background for teaching Caesar in that context and will be introduced to
related texts that their own students might read in the previous year or
in the weeks between the exam and the end of the school year.

You will write several short papers;  there will be no final exam.

Pre-requisite is at least four semesters of college Latin, preferably
rather more.  Previous experience with Caesar — as a student, a
teacher, or a scholar — is useful, but not required.  The course is
open to teachers, graduate students, and advanced undergrads.

Tuition is $2275 for credit, $730 for auditors;  Tufts offers a discount
to full-time teachers.  To register, or for more information, see

Registration is open now and continues through the first day of classes
(1 July)
