Classics in Communities: Theories and Practices to develop Classics Outreach in the 21st Century


30th November 2013, Corpus Christi College

The conference aims to bring together the innovative community projects on ancient cultures and languages that have already developed through Universities and other organisations within and outside the UK, and share best practice. At the end of the conference there will be a round-table session, which we will use to formulate potential UK-wide possibilities for strengthening the role of Classics in Communities, particularly focused on young people. This is a great opportunity for academics, teachers, and community groups to come together and exchange ideas about community involvement.

Contributions are invited on the following topics: community outreach projects, Latin and ancient Greek teaching at primary level, Classics in deprived areas; suggestions of other topics are welcome. We accept talks of half an hour or 10-minute short presentations as part of round-table discussions.

The keynote speakers are Prof. Edith Hall and Dr Michael Scott.

Bursaries will be available.

Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words to Dr Evelien Bracke at by the 30th August 2013.

The project founders are Dr Evelien Bracke (Swansea University), Mai Musié (University of Oxford), and Dr Lorna Robinson (the Iris Project).
