The Women’s Classical Committee UK is extending its deadline for the CfP for spotlight talks at its 2020 Annual General Meeting, ‘Green Shoots in Classics,’ on Friday 24th of April. As we are moving the AGM online, we will be altering the programme to include both synchronic and asynchronic elements. As such, we are extending the call for spotlight talks as it will now be possible to record in advance if an interested speaker is not able to attend on the day.
We are reserving time during the day's schedule for a series of short (five-minute) spotlight talks by delegates. Through this session, we hope to provide a chance for delegates to share projects, experiences or research connected to the WCC’s aims. We are particularly interested in talks that address the AGM’s theme of green shoots in classics; that highlight new, feminist, intersectional and gender-informed work in Classics, ancient history, classical reception or pedagogy (inside and outside the university sector); and that feature new work by postgraduate students and early-career researchers. In light of recent events, we would also welcome talks about online teaching techniques and technologies. If you would like more information or to volunteer to give one of these talks, please e-mail Laurence Totelin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The new deadline for expressing interest is 5pm on Wednesday 1st of April.
People of any gender expression or identity who support the WCC's aims are welcome to attend this event. For further details, see our website at http://wcc-uk.blogs.sas.ac.uk/about-us/.

The WCC UK has an explicit child-friendly policy for our events; this will apply to the virtual AGM, and we anticipate many attendees will need to balance participation with child-care. We will do our best to take this into account in our planning.
