Classics and Social Justice
The panel organizers are Jessica Wright (USC) and Amit Shilo (UCSB).
We welcome papers that discuss any aspect of social justice work in which you are engaged as well as papers that theorize the place of social justice work in Classics and the place of Classics in social justice work.
Possible topics might include: the presentation of projects already underway (for instance, prison education or the use of Classics in other sites such as homeless centers or with veterans’ groups); the scope and limits of academic activism; appropriate methods for approaching social issues; performance and activism; and the power of specific Classical traditions to address the urgency of social change.
Please send anonymous abstracts of approximately 500 words to Professor Alexandra Pappas (email@example.com).
Deadline for the receipt of abstracts is January 31, 2017.
More information: please write to Classicists involved in activism <CLASS-SJ@listserv.hamilton.edu>
